Mathematics

16991760995_84bf23eaf6_bMathematics is a study of relationships, which can be very abstract; as a result, many models of education focus on memory as a tool for learning math. Montessori math incorporates memory, but begins first with concrete, sensorial experiences of materials that express, in a physical way, these relationships. Children see and feel one-to-one correspondence in action; they see and feel the increasing and decreasing increments as they explore numeration, quantity and place value; they see and feel mathematical operations at work. These experiences facilitate a profound and concrete understanding of the subject, and prove much more reliable than through memory alone.
