This unit of study supports students' developing knowledge, skills and understanding of the cognitive development of infants, toddlers and young children and in particular the way understandings about number, patterns, measurement, spatial awareness and other mathematical concepts are supported in the early childhood context. The unit provides students with the ability to help young children gain a beginning understanding and knowledge of ordering, seriation, temporal and numerical order, ordinal number, classification, and one to one correspondence leading to the relationship between logical concepts and mathematics.
