ASSIGNMENT 1 EDU20002: Mathematics In Practice Bree Harper: 100934918 Context and activity: CH 1 is at the play dough table using both hands to explore and experiment with the play dough. She is looking around the room when the educator [ED] engages her in conversation with her peers [CH 2 and CH 3], while she plays with the play dough. Date: 22 nd March 2018 Time: 12.30pm Place: Long Day Care Centre – Kinder Room Age of child: 4 years old Observation 12.30pm: CH 1 is pressing the yellow play dough with her right hand and picking up cookie cutter to cut the play dough into shapes to build her tower. “Am I doing it right so it can look like yours?” ED asks CH 1. ED asks “how many more do I need to build a tower like your one?” CH 3 answers “two more” while CH 1 flattens her play dough on the table using both hands. ED asks “You think I need two more?” Analysis During this play experience CH 1 has demonstrated the ability to locate, count, measure and design. CH 1 is developing her numeracy skills in this experience through “understandings about number , patterns , measurement, spatial awareness and data as well as mathematical thinking, reasoning and counting” ( Department of Education Employment and Workplace Relations for the Council of Australian Governments [DEEWR], 2009, p.43). Locating: CH 1 balances the play dough shapes on top of each other (MacMillan, 2009). 2 | P a g e

ASSIGNMENT 1 EDU20002: Mathematics In Practice Bree Harper: 100934918 CH 1 looks over at ED’s tower and points to her tower and counts “1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6”. ED counts her tower “1, 2, 3, 4 oh I need two more to look like your one” 12.31pm: CH 1 picks up the circle she has cut out and shows her educator and says “here”. “Wow you are adding another one to your tower” responds the educator. “I like it” says CH 1, holding it up in the air. “Here I made it for you” CH 1 says, handing it to CH 2. CH 2 says “Now I have two shapes”. ED “You have two shapes that’s right”. CH 2 picks up another yellow cookie cutter and says “Ooo look at this” and passes the cookie cutter to CH 1. CH 1 uses the cookie cutter to cut the play dough saying to CH 2 “you can have it after CH 1 was able to count the play dough shapes by number words while counting the play dough shapes. Showing use of numerical quantifiers and one-to-one correspondence by pointing at tower and counting the play dough shapes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
