"Children display a universal love of mathematics, which is par excellence the science of precision, order, and intelligence. "
The child’s mind has been awakened to mathematical notions such as dimension, gradation, identity similarity, and sequence through sensorial experience. In Montessori, it is called the “Mathematical Mind”. Mathematical lessons presented to children take them from the concrete, sensorial impression of numbers to a more abstract form. The concrete materials help the child to develop a solid understanding of mathematical concepts, prepare them for reasoning, and help develop problem-solving capabilities. The child learns to add, subtract, multiply, and divide and to see the numerical, geometrical, and dimensional relationships within the decimal system.
