Course: Reasoning & Numeracy in Childhood (PY-133-1) 

Examines the development of reasoning in childhood, from its beginnings in infancy through the maturation of abstract thinking in adolescence. The classic stage model proposed by Jean Piaget and his followers will be evaluated in terms of more recent research that has led to revisions in our underastanding of children's cognitive abilities. Special attention will be paid to the development of quantitative reasoning, beginning with basic numeracy and progressing to more complex operations. Methods of facilitating reasoning and mathematical competence also will be considered. P: PY111. Offered every other year. 1.5 credits
