From the most fundamental stages to the most complex, mathematics in the Montessori classroom involves a hands on approach. Children learn the meaning and value of numbers by physically exploring and manipulating objects.


As learning become more complex, children continue to use physical objects to explore the decimal system, mathematics functions, the concepts of squares and cubes, and more. The language and foundations established in the Sensorial area are extended, and children become confident and enthusiastic about exploring the world of mathematics.
