    Abstract

    The project mathematical Thinking of preschool Children in Rural and Regional Australia: reasearch and practice aimed to investigate views of preschool pracittioners about young children's mathematical thinking and development. Structured individual interviews were conducted with 64 preschool practitioners from rural areas of three australian states. the questions focused on five broad themes: children's mathematics learning, support for mathematics teaching, technology and computers. attitudes and feelings, and assessment and record keeping. We review results from the interview data for each of these themes, discuss their importance, and outline recommendations related to teacher education as well as resource development and research.
