Montessori mathematics focuses on the fundamental skills to calculate. The children learn linear counting and recognition of numerals, which then leads into addition, subtraction, multiplication and division concepts. They learn the principles of math through bank role-playing. Different children assume different roles—the banker or the customer-and the children are able to contextualize the decimal system, from units to thousands. This really creates a concrete understanding of numerical place values, and paves the way for advanced math operations. The children are having a blast doing this!
