The Montessori math materials are among the most powerful educational techniques in the world. They provide manipulation of beads, chains, counters, rods, and cards. Children explore and discover math principles and concepts as they prepare to add, subtract, multiply, and divide. The basic components of the decimal system are presented as early as the preschool level. Children actually see and feel the differences between the unit, the ten, the hundred, and the thousand. Like no other, the Montessori Math Curriculum provides excellent learning experiences using a multi-sensorial approach. This method provides a strong, solid foundation for understanding the abstractness of math. From sandpaper numbers to the dynamic lessons of the functions of math, Montessori students gain extraordinary mathematical skills as they grasp understanding of number concepts.
