Using Visualization in Montessori Math

Friday, March 23 4:00 PM - 5:15 PM

Presenter: Joan A. Cotter

Target Audience: Early Childhood, Elementary I

To truly understand and appreciate the beauty of mathematics, children must internalize its basic components and be able to perceive relationships between them. This workshop will explore visualization activities for arithmetic and use Montessori’s decimal cards and other materials to replace the imperative to memorize with more concrete and intuitive understanding.
