Montessori Numbers is designed to help build sound mathematical foundations in children aged 3-7 by using a concrete, visually significant material inspired from the Montessori methodology.

Montessori Numbers offers a sequence of guided activities that gradually help children reinforce their skills. Each activity offers several levels of increasing complexity.

• Learn to count up to 999
• Experiment with quantities and learn their names
• Learn the numerals and their names
• Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities
• Understand the decimal system and place value
• Master the numerical order
• Learn to trace numbers

Montessori Numbers builds on the iPad’s touch feature, and uses verbal feedback for more efficient learning. The app can pronounce any number between 0 and 1009 (American, British and Australian voices available).

Common Core State Standard
___________

This app will help your child in learning the following Common Core State Standards domains:
• Counting and Cardinality (K.CC)
• Operations and Algebraic Thinking (K.OA, 1.OA.1/2/5)
• Number & Operations in Base Ten (K.BNT,1.NBT.1/2/4/5/6, 2.NBT.1/2/3/5/8/9, 3.NBT.1/2). The app is great to deal with place value.

Activities
___________

• Hundred Board
A great activity to help your child master the numerical order of 1-1000, and to introduce numerical patterns. The hundred board displays 100 numbers in a square. The first number (1,101,201,...) can be chosen so it can customized for each child

• 1 to 20
This activity is designed to introduce numbers.
3 levels of difficulty: 0 to 5, 0 to 10 and 11 to 20.

• Quantity
In this activity, kids associate quantities to numbers by manipulating units, bars of 10, and squares of 100 to match a given number which is pronounced and optionally displayed.
Levels of difficulty: 0 to 9, 10 to 99, 100 to 999 or custom

• Numerals
In this activity, number names are to be associated with numerals. As a number name is pronounced, kids are invited to build the corresponding numeral. Kids can freely experiment with numerals and hear the names associated with each numeral they build. The quantity representing the numbers built is also displayed to reinforce the association between quantity and numerals.
Levels of difficulty: 0 to 9, 10 to 99, 100 to 999 or custom

• Numerals (from Quantity)
In this activity, a quantity is to be associated with a given numeral. The child must build the number that matches the quantity displayed. This is the most complex activity because the child must count the quantity displayed, and then build the number using the numerals.
Levels of difficulty: 0 to 9, 10 to 99, 100 to 999 or custom

• Number Tracing
Learn to trace numbers with animations that follow the child's touch. Several options (size, difficulty, tracing style, show/hide model) are available to tailor the activity to your needs.

• Building Block Game:
A game can be started at the end of each activity (availability can be modified in settings). There is no “real” goal to this game - kids can play freely with the materials, thus becoming more familiar with them.

NOT Montessori style

stickershocked

I was excited to find this app bundle which seemed to promise simple tracing, number and spelling activities. From the preview pictures it seemed the child could simply trace letters with a colored line over the black letter. In fact, the app uses a carnival-worth if sounds and flashing graphics. Even if you turn off most of the sound elements, you still have the flashing lights with cascades it stars and confetti each time you complete tracing a letter or spelling a word. There is _nothing_ in the style of these apps like the simplicity and self-correcting method of Montessori learning methods. These apps are over stimulating and will habituate your child to expecting flashing stars and applause every time they trace a letter. This is more video game than learning tool. I will never use these apps and regret paying almost $9 for the bundle.

Developer Response

In the tracing activity, you can use a simple colored line if you don't like the animations: just open the settings (gear icon) and change the line style. In all apps, there are settings to disable animations and sound if you want a simpler experience. I would like to add that I talked with many Montessori teachers and there are not against animations and sounds if the activity is really educational and help the child to learn.

Misreading Numbers

P2o7o8k2

This is a good substitute app for when a child is absent from school (Montessori) for long periods or for when reinforcement is needed. However, the numbers I. The hundreds are read incorrectly. The number "643", for example, is read as "six hundred and forty-three". The correct way to say the number is "six hundred forty-three." In math "and" represents the decimal point as in "six and one tenth" for the number "6.1". This is troublesome because is error is repeated with each number in every section. I sincerely hope this will be fixed.

Developer Response

Just choose the US voice in the settings to have the good pronunciation. The app offers several voices (US, British and Australian) because numbers pronunciation is not the same in these countries. You did select UK or Australian voice and that's why the app read numbers with "and".

Awesome!

Exceeded my expectations! I bought these for my 3 year old grandson, who is growing up in a trilingual culture. Amazing graphics. I have enjoyed playing with these games so much. Easily used, clear instructions, inviting play & learn. Better than promised! I bought preschool math, writing & letters individually...because I was sold on it after I tried the math version....JUST BUY THE BUNDLE!...the programs are well worth the price either way!
