Math: From Toddler to Elementary

At this workshop, the teachers of Toddler, Casa dei Bambini and Elementary programs will tell how the mathematical thinking develops in children in the Montessori system. The teachers will show math presentations explaining how this evolution is associated with language, accuracy and logic development in the Montessori environment. Parents will have a journey into understanding of children's ability to math thinking laid down by the very nature of human being and naturally appearing at different ages.

The sequence of presentations in different Montessori programs is associated with three important principles. They allow gradual formation of knowledge which help understanding the world at the age of twelve. These knowledge combine other subjects and help to apply these discoveries in everyday life.

These principles are laid in:
- understanding of quantities and signs to express these quantities;
- math operations used in the processes of studying geometry, arithmetic and algebra;
- memorization;

Two important math processes (memorization and abstraction) lead directly to the goal of Montessori pedagogy - aid to life and independence.

The seminar will be held simultaneously in two classes of the Elementary program in Russian and English.
