The theory that will be used is predicated upon early learning in mathematics for children in pre-k classrooms. The premise of this theoretical framework is based upon delivering effective core instruction to all students in their early primary grades wherein a sound for mathematical understanding is fostered and students can be prevented from developing difficulties in math early in their academic life. This theoretical framework has been garnering interests from researchers within early childhood development and researchers who espouse to this framework envision introducing children to mathematical models beginning with three-dimensional ...
