Using this material, the Table of Pythagoras, the child places the squares and rectangles in order by size and color to complete the square of the decanomial. The main purpose of this activity is to help children learn how to discriminate size, shape and colour. It is also preparation for mathematics.
Montessori students learn through a hands on approach. Students first touch materials and manipulate numbers and then are led to study the abstract.
This table is used in conjunction with the Montessori Pythagoras Board as a tool in Elementary classes. Students learn their multiplication facts or times tables using this material.
The material consists of a 10 compartment beech wood box for storing the sets of color-coded wooden mdf squares and rectangles.
