From concrete to abstract, students learn math with hands-on materials

New School Preprimary students develop a concrete understanding of math by using hands-on Montessori materials to explore the base-ten number system, relationships between numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and even beginning algebra. Students also learn to recognize and write numerals by tracing sandpaper numbers with their fingers, writing them with a pencil and placing numbers in the proper order.
