Mathematics – Preschool

The Montessori classroom environment prepares the child to develop math skills at a young age.

Sandpaper numerals and colored beads developed of quantity and symbols. The spindle box teaches the child the concept of zero as a placeholder. “Golden Bead Material” introduces the child, in a wonderfully simple way, to the concept of units of tens, hundreds, and thousands. Using the apparatus, and many others, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and fractions are simple operations performed and comprehended by busy children in the Montessori classroom.
