Preparation of the Mathematical Mind: The human mind is mathematical by nature. It seeks and recognizes definite patterns, whether it is the change of four seasons or the rhythms in the day and night. This is evident as young as infants who look for peaceful sameness. Humans are born with this tendency, so we all have mathematical minds. What is the decimal system if nothing but a pattern? We use tactile materials designed by Dr. Montessori to show children how to count and provide a clear understanding of addition, multiplication, subtraction, and division. Your child will have an opportunity to develop an intrinsic understanding of mathematics that will allow them to feel confident about building elementary math knowledge.
