Montessori Math is Everywhere

In our Montessori classrooms (age 1-grade 3), the prepared environment stimulates mathematical thinking and fosters precision, order, and exactness.  Montessori Math materials at every level in our program are used to maximize learning and make complex, abstract concepts clear and concrete.  It is through the progressive studies of mathematics, beginning algebra, and geometry that students can explore and apply sophisticated levels of mathematical understandings.  Our photos represent 2-3 year olds concentrating on organizing numbers and linear counting.  In Primary, students work on linear counting and skip counting by 8s and also single-digit division.  Here, a 3rd grade student is involved in 2-digit division using the Racks & Tubes!  With math as a guiding principle throughout all areas and levels of the Montessori curricula, math for us is truly everywhere!
