Mathematics in the Montessori Classroom
Students in the elementary classroom continue with many of the math manipulatives introduced in the primary classroom and expand their problem solving skills with new materials that focus on abstract thinking. Gross motor activities such as using giant rubber bands to explore vertices and plane figures provide a multi-sensory way to learn mathematical concepts.
Memorization of multiplication tables and other basic facts is fun and easy using research proven memory techniques and multi-sensory activities such as singing the tens, cheerleading the twos and jump roping the fours.
The year culminates with cross-curricular projects designed by students.
