Montessori Binomial Cube
The Binomial Cube is one of the most iconic Montessori materials, part of the sensorial curriculum area. The material is comprised of 8 wooden blocks which, when put together correctly, create a cube. These blocks fit into a natural wood box, which has the completed cube painted on the lid.
The purpose of the material is less focused on the complex mathematics behind the material, and rather is to provide a challenge for a child’s ability to find patterns and relationships between the blocks. Later on, it can be a precursor for more complex mathematical concepts including fractions and algebra.
The child is taught through demonstration to systematically deconstruct then reconstruct the cube. Each cube has a control image on the lid of the box which may assist the child. They also have a control of error, when they are successfully completed they will form a perfect cube.
