Get Started

Between the ages of six and twelve, children begin to learn more complex mathematical operations, such as fractions, square roots, cube roots, etc.

In this course, aimed at teachers or parents of children in the Primary stage, we will learn how the Montessori material in the area of ​​Mathematics allows children to learn these concepts based on sensory preparation.

Learning Mathematics is one of the aspects that distinguishes Montessori pedagogy, because it happens easily and arises interest in children, thanks to the materials and criteria that are followed when introducing them. 

Mathematical skills begin to develop through concrete experiences that allow the child to understand the concepts, instead of mechanizing them and relating them to everyday situations.

“The teaching of mathematics should be completely transformed, starting from a sensorial preparation, starting from a concrete knowledge” – Maria Montessori
