The Pink Tower was developed as an activity to help children with visual discrimination of dimensions, a Montessori preparation for math.
There are twelve exercises for the child to work with. Each requires them to identify the next cube in sequence to complete the desired pattern. As the cubes are chosen they will automatically move into position.
The relationship in size between each cube in this app and the physical Pink Tower are exactly the same which is important for future Montessori activities!
This app was co-developed and approved by an AMI certified Montessori teacher with over forty years experience! We admit, we struggled with whether or not we should even develop a Pink Tower application because holding a three dimensional cube in your hand is supposed to be part of the concrete experience! However, understanding that most parents will not have a Pink Tower at home, there is value in constructing the two dimensional patterns by having to identify which cube is required in sequence to complete the design.
Young children will enjoy working with the Pink Tower and will be gaining key concepts useful in their understanding of math.
