Hi everyone its me again these questions are just driving me round the bend. Please help

 

Knowledge question

 

K/E.10 & K/E 11.

How does intellectual development help children to learn about mathematical and scientific concepts? How does their understanding of these concepts change over time?

 

Would appreciate if someone could put my mind at rest please.

 

Love Trudy :o

It's also about the ability to develop some kind of logical thought, too, I think. If a child has opportunities to experiment with, say, water and a variety of things that float/sink, then s/he is able to make predictions and test out theories, which in turn lead to logical understanding. Learning through sequencing all sorts of things is also a pre-requisite to mathematical and scientific understanding.

Once a child has made some decisions about the way the world works, s/he can then make links between these concepts, thus developing and widening his/her understanding.

I've just read this back, and not entirely sure if it answers your question :)

Thanks Helen thank you so much you said it all in one excellent piece of advice. I have done the activity of floating and skinking with the children when my assessor observed me on that activity. I did a maths activity with the 3-4yrs helping them recognise them makes cakes on a plate with the number they choose. I was justa bit confused as the knowledge questions are sometimes repeated and then i ask ???????? Do post me a feedback on this note.

 

Thanks Trudy :D
