This subject presents the development of mathematical, scientific and technological concepts by young children within a socio-cultural theoretical framework informed by an inquiry stance. Science, mathematics and technology provide tools and contexts for processing concrete, perceptual and linguistically available information to form concepts and solve problems. Students will participate in a number of practical but theoretically based experiences in order to understand the kinds of social, linguistic and imaginative contexts which facilitate young children's mathematical, scientific and technological understanding.
