In the first of a two-part series on pattern, Nicole Weinstein looks at the concept that underpins it all - mathematics -and suggests resources to encourage children to design, build or observe patterns in order to make sense of the world around them.
Structured games designed to encourage children to estimate numbers can improve their mathematical abilities later on in life. Dr Jo Van Herwegen explains how the approach works.
Children's ability to estimate is more important to their mathematical development than counting, explains Jo Van Herwegen.
