Mathematics, the pattern of Numbers

For infants we start with number rods, a Montessori tool that was designed actually for primary children. When children leave for primary level, most of them can sensually count till 10.

For fast learners we have all Montessori math materials. Practically we make them to count and explore the numerical from their environment.

From the Uni5 system point of view, we again conenct that mathematical patterns in all streams of life. We connect to practical life by allowing them to measure rice and grains with both traditional measuring cups and the modern one's. They count and also connect to volume measurements also.
