This set consists of 121 parts that consolidate the number range up to 1000. The colors of the cubes are designed according to the Montessori colors. The smallest green cube 1 x 1 x 1 cm represents the value 1, the large green cube represents the value 1000. Through the material, children experience and understand the power of individual values in the decimal system. The basic types of arithmetic are clearly taught with this material.
Application, advantages, areas of application for this Montessori material:
Getting to know the decimal system

Instructions for the Montessori material colored cubes
The adult places a green ones-cube, a blue tens-stick, a red hundreds-plate and the green thousands-cube on the table. Now he takes the one's die and says this is one.
To the left of the one he puts the ten stick and says That's ten. Now he compares very emphatically the units cube with the tens rod in order to clarify the difference in size. Also to the left of the tens bar is the hundreds plate. These are hundreds and the tens bar is compared with the hundreds plate. This also happens with the thousand cube (that is a thousand).
Please give me one, please give me 10, please put the hundred on the table there, where are a thousand
If the child still has difficulties with this assignment, calmly start the exercise from the beginning and possibly first take the units cube and the thousands cube (two very different sizes).
If the child shows confidence in this exercise, the third of the three-step lesson comes:
The adult, for example, points to the tens rod: What is it? Now he points to the thousand cube: What is it? ....
Now the thousand cube, the hundred plate and the ten bar are dismantled. To do this, the adult puts the tens stick in front of him and places the same number of cubes next to it, counting loudly:
one, two, three ......... ten - a tens consists of 10 ones
Then he puts a hundreds plate in front of him and also counts aloud the corresponding number of tens bars next to it:
a tens, two tens ......... ten tens - a hundred consists of ten tens.
The thousand cube is placed with the hundred plates
one hundred, two hundred ........ ten hundreds - a thousand consists of ten hundreds
What do I need to put the number xxxx? - (e.g. 342 = 2 ones, 4 tens and 3 hundreds) Small arithmetic problems can be solved.
