Centers and Projects
Big Math for Little Kids is co-authored by Herbert Ginsburg of Teachers College Columbia Univerisity with Carole Greenes at Boston University and Robert Balfanz at Johns Hopkins University. It is a comprehensive and challenging mathematics curriculum developed for pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten children.
The program is based on research findings indicating that young children are ready to learn math, capable of learning math, and enjoy learning math. Founded on these principles, Big Math for Little Kids aims to provide young children with an enjoyable, meaningful, and rich mathematical experience that lays the groundwork for academic success.
From 2004-2007, a three-year research project to evaluate the fidelity with which teachers teach the curriculum, to examine the quality of their teaching, and to determine the program's effectiveness in promoting student mathematics achievement. Since then, we have been developing professional development workshops In conjunction with this research to support teachers of Big Math for Little Kids.
