Tippett, Christine D.; Milford, Todd M. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in early childhood education is an area currently given little attention in the literature, which is unfortunate since young children are natural scientists and engineers. Here, we outline our mixed-methods design-based research investigation of a pre-kindergarten (Pre-K) classroom where two…

Dunekacke, Simone; Jenßen, Lars; Blömeke, Sigrid – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
This study addresses the relation of pre-school teachers' mathematics content knowledge and their performance--how they perceive mathematical learning situations and whether they are able to plan adequate actions that foster children's learning--in the informal settings of pre-schools. It thus addresses a serious gap in teacher research that has…
