Exploring Creative Mathematical Development
At this meeting we had the chance to explore the materials in the context of creativity linking to mathematical development.
The participants enjoyed weaving, mixing colours, sorting, using boxes, painting with mixed media, and mixing with kitchen utensils.
Whilst exploring the natural materials the particpants realised that they were using lots of mathematical words and concepts, such as bigger, smaller, more, less, thin, wide, narrow. They described materials with shape words and counted and sorted into groups.
