Two Montessori luminaries, Benedetto Scoppola and Kay Baker, will present the deep connections between geometry and mathematics ready for your sensorial exploration and discovery. This popular theme will awaken your interest in math. This conference in Milwaukee (October, 2011) was highly praised; some comments were,
“So well prepared and knowledgeable.”
“Benedetto made it simple and elegant.”
“This entire weekend lifted my spirits and helped me remember why
I have been in a Montessori classroom for two decades.”
Topics will include the mathematical mind in the first six years of life, an inspiring urban multicultural Montessori school, and a math curriculum for middle and high school. Panelists from public, charter, and community schools will share their challenges and rewards and address the question of assessment.
