Curious about the Montessori Math sequence? I thought a useful place to start would be to share the sequence of Montessori Math lessons that I learned in my program. Keep in mind that this is a PATH, not linear. Some lessons (Numeration and Place Value) are given in order, while others (Linear Counting and Math Facts) can be given and practiced by the child simultaneously.
