Description

The Trinomial Cube represents the algebraic formula (a + b + c)³.  The factors of the equation are represented by cubes and prisms.  The colour coded blocks are different sizes to represent the algebraic Trinomial formula.

The purpose, for the preschooler, is not to teach maths but to challenge the child to find patterns and spatial relationships. It is best to think of these as three-dimensional puzzles.  Indirectly, the Child is being prepared for mathematics.

When the Child enters the 6 to 9 environment the indirect purpose becomes the direct purpose and they start the exciting journey into algebra.

Features

  • aimed at all the environments
  • initially, a form of puzzle and to imprint the spatial and muscle memory
  • used to explore algebraic equations in the elementary class
  • a self-correcting exercise
  • beautifully crafted from solid Beechwood blocks
  • Stored on the shelf in a hinged birchply box with a lid.

One of the attractions to the Montessori Method is the extensive use of wood.

We use several types of wood, sourced from renewable sources, in the production of our Montessori Materials.

  • Solid beechwood for cylinder blocks, pink towers, dressing frames and brown stairs.
  • Birchply for trays, holders and animal and botany puzzles.
  • MDF for puzzle maps
  • Pineply for boxes and containers

 

We ensure that the coatings and inks used are not only eco-friendly, but also non-toxic.

Our wooden products are manufactured by responsible partner factories both locally and abroad and ensure that fair labour practices are adopted.

Care instructions for Childrens House Wooden Materials:

  • If wooden products are exposed to liquids, wipe dry as quickly as possible.
  • Most of the surfaces can be wiped with a damp cloth if exposed to dirt or grime.
  • Avoid leaving any of our wooden product in direct sunlight, as it may warp certain woods and/ or the coating may fade over time.
