This is the blog for the courses for kindergarten teachers. In particular, as part of their BSc (Early Childhood Education), undergraduates at Wheelock College and SEED Institute, are required to read EDU330 Elementary Mathematics. The students will be blogging their reflection during the course. The course starts on 1 September 2010.
