05 Feb Montessori Maths
In our school we utilise Montessori math materials in order to assist children approach math with hands-on, visual, and physical learning aids. Through using these materials, children are able to attach concrete knowledge to the often abstract concepts in math.
The Montessori maths materials cover the core skills (subtraction, addition, division and multiplication), as well as geometry such as shapes, fractions, lines, angles and so forth. Through hands on concrete experience, abstract concepts are understood, learnt and reapplied in various situations helping our children become confident and knowledgeable mathematicians.
