Children can learn math easily if it is presented in a concrete way.  A child needs to manipulate and experience.  A storehouse of order and sequence must be built.  Practical Life lessons are indirect preparation for Math.  They offer exposure to sequence, order and exactness.  Math concepts are concrete and move toward abstraction and repetition is the key.  It is through repeated and successive mathematical play that children find the consistency.  Once a child has mastered 1-10, the Montessori curriculum branches into studies of the basic operations of addition, multiplication, subtraction and division, and introduction to the decimal system, and more advanced counting centered on a study of square and cube root.




These areas of study are noted below.  Each subject is a link to more information.
