MATHEMATICS

MATHEMATICS

Maria Montessori believed that Mathematics should be considered as a special kind of language. It is very clear and concise that way of communicating with others in a particular area.
Dr. Montessori stated that man is born with a “Mathematical Mind.” She took the term from Pascal, the French philosopher and mathematician, who said that “man’s mind through certain tendencies and sensitive periods as well as through the fact that the young child needs to understand his/her environment in a logical manner. In order for humankind to develop and progress he/she must acquire the ability to discriminate in all areas.
Maria Montessori approached the introduction of mathematics in the same way as the other materials which she introduced to the children. She selected an abstraction i.e., number and turned it into something concrete, a “material abstraction “e.g., the Number Rods which the child worked with until he/she had grasped the concept and was able to use it.

Power of 3 Cube

The Power of 3 Cube consists of a dissected cube in 13 pieces painted yellow, green and white.

Demonstrates the power of 3 by progressively tripling the previous piece, starting with a two centimeter cube. That cube is then triples with two similar cubes. Those three cubes are then tripled with two 6 x 2 x 2 centimeter prisms, eventually creating an 18 centimeter cube.

The wooden tray is included.

Arithmetic Trinomial Cube

This cube represents the equation (a + b + c)3 in concrete form and differs from the Trinomial Cube in that the component pieces are color-coded to represent hierarchical values from 1 unit to 1 million.

This makes it possible for the child to equate an arithmetical value to each of the cubes and prisms.
