Description

Montessori Multiplication Table
Courtesy Daniel Jutras Ph.D of The Canadian Montessori Teacher Education Institute

The Pythagoras Board is basically the multiplication times table in visual form. It has the numbers 1-10 going vertical and horizontal on the board. The are 100 number tiles and the child chooses a wooden tile, thinks of a multiplication equation that produces this product, then places the chip in the correct position on the ruled board. There is also a set of cards with multiplication equations for the child to answer and a control chart is included to enable the child to check their own work.

Growing up many of us remember two things about math:

1) that we didn’t like it, and

2) how boring it was to memorize the multiplication tables.

 

How much would we have benefited from the hands-on nature of the Montessori materials? Plus, being able to focus on the process rather than simply finding the correct answer. By using the Montessori math materials on a everyday basis, children often memorize their math facts without actually setting out to do so.  (http://mcsomaha.org/work-week-pythagoras-board/
