If you ever thought you were bad at math, you were wrong. We are all born with a powerful mathematical mind. The mathematical mind, as conceived by Maria Montessori, is the capacity that human beings have to solve problems, discover patterns in nature and plan actions that lead us to a previously visualised objective.
If you ever thought you were bad at math, you were wrong. We are all born with a powerful mathematical mind. The mathematical mind, as conceived by Maria Montessori, is the capacity that human beings have to solve problems, discover patterns in nature and plan actions that lead us to a previously visualised objective. In short, the mathematical mind is the instrument with which nature has endowed us to adapt to the environment and survive.
Our task as educators is to exalt the child’s mathematical mind. When the child asks pointing to the zero: What is put in this box? it is answered:”Nothing; zero means nothing”. But this is not enough: it is necessary to make feel what means nothing . (Montessori, 2015). This is the secret of Montessori pedagogy. This methodology focuses on sensory experience and it is through this experience that the child is able to remember and learn an abstract concept such as mathematics, in a way appropriate to his level of development.
The mathematical mind is therefore universal, is present from birth, and is part of human tendencies such as Abstraction, Work, Order, Accuracy and Exploration. Mathematics is in the environment, and children can learn it in the same way that they learn to speak, with the daily events of daily life.
In this Montessori Mathematics course, we want to offer theoretical tools to understand the child’s mathematical mind, thus being able to improve the teaching proposals that can be given in any educational environment.
We will do it relying on the same Montessori materials. Seeking to understand its internal logic, the reason for its design and its multiple uses at the service of the child’s mathematical mind.
In turn, we will intersperse theoretical elements that allow us to understand Montessori philosophy, the prepared environments, their operation and the psycho-pedagogical principles on which they are based, with more depth and scope.
Introduce the Montessorian approach to mathematics.
Teach the curricular sequence of mathematics that the Montessori method proposes from 3 to 12 years old.
Provide theoretical tools to understand the child's mathematical mind and improve teaching and learning teaching proposals.
Provide practical tools through the mathematical development materials to be able to introduce manipulative materials in any mathematics class.
Practice with Montessori Materials to integrate the theoretical and practical tools offered in the seminar.
The Montessori Mathematics course is aimed at:
After successfully completing the activities requested at the end of each module, the student will receive the Introductory course to Montessori Mathematics Certificate in digital format, issued , by the International Montessori Institute as the official training centre for Montessori pedagogy.
