Melbourne Graduate School of Education
Caroline Cohrssen is interested in young children’s demonstrations of mathematical thinking, not only in what they say but also in what they make, draw and do. Caroline’s work aims to equip pre-service early childhood educators to recognise mathematical thinking, plan playful activities and interact purposefully with children to support and extend children's emerging mathematical skills and understanding.
