Constance Kamii on teaching maths

Questioning assumptions with Constance Kamii

This is a brilliant blog post by Sylvia Martinez, reporting on the ideas of Constance Kamii about teaching mathematics to young learners. Sylvia has done a great job in putting the theory and then illustrating it with some fairly detailed practical tips, all based on a presentation by CK. She concludes with references and links to books by Kamii

This has the unmistakable appearance of a beautiful, fragrant flower shining in the desert of information overload and systemic separation of theory and practice.

Thanks, Bill. I hope hope hope that people read her body of work. My post can't begin to capture the depth of what she's done.
