How Children Learn Mathematics in a Montessori Classroom

Making math easier to understand through specialized teaching materials.

We teachers can only help the work going on, as servants wait upon a master. – Dr. Maria Montessori


In a Montessori classroom math is taught in a hands-on manner rather than paper to pencil only. Our children use counting beads, counting tubes, and other materials that make the concept of how numbers relate to each other easier to grasp for our youngsters.

You’ll find children working in small groups, counting out rows of beads, breaking them into sets of tens, hundreds, or thousands and adding them together. This hands-on approach allows the children to touch and feel the numbers and turning it into something concrete makes it easier for young minds to understand.

If children attend a Montessori elementary school they will use the same math materials through 6th grade. The foundation they receive in transition and primary will stay with them through their upper grades.
