## Montessori Math 101

Montessori emphasized that the child is naturally drawn to precision, organizing, comparing, and creating order out of disorder, to classify and quantify patterns and relationships.

We are born with a drive to calculate and reason within our environments. With guidance, the capacity to think in this way flourishes and develops over the years.

So, exposing a child to math ideas is helpful to the development of more complex math concepts. Without this exposure, a child’s brain won’t be as ripe for more advanced critical thinking.
