Exploring with puzzles, spirals, and towers using rods that are marked and numbered all help reinforce the idea that math is found everywhere.
✔️ Numbers fit within larger numbers and can likewise be broken down into smaller numbers.
✔️ Spirals work because each subsequent piece decreases in length. Length is related to number value.
✔️ Numbers can be regrouped. Creating a puzzle with 1 and 8 on one side is the equivalent to using 8 and 1 on the other side.

All these theories combined all point to the main idea that children learn best when provided opportunities for hands-on, visual, & tactile exploration of various math manipulatives.

Yes, the colors of the text and bar lines match the colors on your Montessori bead stairs, except for #4. Number 4 is a light green instead of yellow, so there is some contrast with the color of the wood.
The addition strip board used in Montessori math allows for addition up to 18. Our board follows this concept but allows addition up to 20 as this matches the value of our rods. Our boards also provide bolded lines every 5th line for visual reference points of values of 5, 10, 15, and 20. The foldable design also makes this set an all-enclosed, individual, travel-friendly set.
Great question! While our rods are similar to Cuisenaire Rods in its increasing gradient lengths, the value of our rods are also determined by these added designs: the digit + name + # of squares on the back. As we also incorporate Montessori philosophies into our design, we focus on using just 2 rod colors (honey & cream) instead of 10 different colors. This is to aide with visual focus and provide understanding of odd & even number patterns.
Absolutely! We only use safe, water-based finish on our beech wood blocks. All of our products go through stringent lab testing to ensure that we are not only compliant to Toy Safety Standards, but that we exceed those standards including: US (ASTM-F963), Canada (SOR 2011-7 & SOR 2018), Australia & New Zealand (ISO 8124), the EU & UK (BS EN-71), and Japan (JFSL).
