Montessori Numbers does a great job of translating the Montessori method to the digital world. It allows kids to have that hands-on interaction with the blocks and number rods to help understand numbers and quantity. Number tracing adds more hands-on. It also captures the self-exploratory feel of Montessori schools.

However, the app will not appeal to everyone. These activities require a bit of self-motivation as they present a basic task, but no goal. While Montessori Numbers provides the content, the amount kids learn and the connections they make between the objects and math concepts are up to them.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
