  • Briefing of the report :

An exclusive workshop on laying foundation of mathematics was organized by DPSS HRDC. It was really an informative session and focused on Montessori method of education. Montessori method is a child centered. It was told that mathematics is one of the universal language, which has a base of numbers and signs. Mathematics is the knowledge of quantity. A child makes use of mathematics to explore nature and universe and even babies while crawling and getting down from bed. It allows child to develop ideas and imagination, to create a cause and effect relationship. The session emphasized on allowing the kids to do their work by themselves and to learn by doing mistakes. When we stop kids from doing things by themselves we place psychological obstacles in front of them and when they do things by themselves they become more confident and all these indirect preparation lays foundation to receive mathematics, a language to describe things which are in our mind.

Child needs to know what numbers are and what do they represent, what numeral is, what are the basic operations, how to sequence up the number. We were also told about use of beads, rods blocks. Few of the screenshots of the session are attached below-:
