n Learning and Teaching Mathematics - Sounding the numbers : an interdisciplinary teaching model

Volume 2012, Issue 12
  • ISSN : 1990-6811


The article outlines an interdisciplinary project trialled at an Israeli teacher-training college. Devised by maths and music lecturers, it involved a class of first-year students training to become early-years educators, and was incorporated into their weekly maths classes. As part of the first stage of the project, a teaching model, original teaching materials and a range of guiding pedagogical strategies were developed and tested at college level over one term. The article opens with a short theoretical examination of the advantages of an integrative approach to the teaching of music and mathematics in early-years education. It then goes on to present some of the teaching materials devised and tested as part of the project. The article will be relevant to colleagues across the spectrum of early-childhood teacher-training and professional development programs.
