Have you ever wondered why there is no math homework in a Montessori classroom? Or what the Table of Pythagoras has to do with standardized testing?
This wonderfully articulate book by Montessorian Michael Duffy offers concise, complete explanations of the Montessori math materials, their purpose, and their classroom uses, without ignoring topics of concern to parents, such as homework, recent brain research, and standardized testing.
Photos of children working with the materials, charts, and diagrams help make this a very readable guide for families, administrators, and assistants. From The Parent-Child Press. Paperback, 78 pages.
