The Young Mathematicians at Work Series

In their Young Mathematicians at Work series, Catherine Twomey Fosnot and Maarten Dolk describe Mathematics in the City, an innovative project where teachers helped young children construct a deep understanding of number and operations in a math workshop environment. Now they and two colleagues from the project, Antonia Cameron and Sherrin B. Hersch, have developed a 21st-century approach that provides pre- and inservice teachers with an interactive video-based, digital context for inquiry into the teaching and learning of mathematics.
