Having previously taught in a Montessori Primary classroom (ages 3 to 6), gives me a unique understanding and sense of awe when I present Upper Elementary lessons. I presented many math and sensorial lessons when I taught preschool and kindergarten with the understanding that they were foundational lessons for work later in the Elementary curriculum, but I never really understood what they would be doing with the concrete lessons and materials they used as Primary students. When I get to present lessons like “The Algebraic Binomial,” I always love the look on the faces of the students as they learn more about a material they used at the age of 3. Have you ever wondered what the Binomial Cube is really about? Find out below!
