Golden Beads - the Heart of the Montessori Place Value Materials

The Golden Beads concretely symbolize the decimal system.
Example:  1 golden bead represents 1 unit
                   10 golden beads represent a bar of ten
                   10 bars of ten represent a square of 100
                   10 squares of 100 represent a cube of 1000

Golden Beads Introduction:

Quantity:  incorporates 3 period manipulation of materials.
Numerals:  colored numeral cards are taught in a 3 period exact place value format.
Association Quantity to Numerals:  true manipulation promotes exact understanding.
Equivalence:  Units to ten, tens to hundred, hundreds, to thousand.

Children explore the equivalencies of the decimal system as students exchange each level of place value golden bead symbols for its equivalent material.  The beautiful Golden Beads attract and delight even the young child to build and work with "great numbers".
