Mathematics

Mathematics in the Golden Grove School classroom gives the children the background and history of mathematics. It allows children to move through the curriculum in a logical systematic way moving from concrete materials to abstract ideas, concepts and operations which build upon each other. The mathematics lessons and practise work rely heavily on the Montessori mathematics materials that are orderly, attractive, empowering and engaging. The mathematics curriculum includes the teaching of the history of mathematics, number identification, place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions and decimals and geometry.
