Montessori Preschool: Division with the Stamp Game
Age 6

A 6-year-old Montessori preschool child used the Stamp Game to solve these division problems. In doing so he learned that division means to share equally among a given number. Green, blue, and red stand for the place value categories of units, tens, and hundreds; these colors are used consistently throughout Montessori preschool and elementary math materials to aid children in retaining the order of the categories.
