Investigating Mathematics, Science and Technology in Early Childhood explores the ways in which young children develop mathematics, science and technology understandings through everyday play and investigation.

Taking a holistic approach, the book addresses key areas of knowledge within mathematics, science and technology in the early years’ contexts and looks at how they can be integrated to create meaningful learning experiences. It provides clear explanations and examples of mathematical, scientific and technological concepts and processes to help pre-service educators build up their own content knowledge to confidently prepare for practice in early years learning environments.
