The fact that practically all the sensorial exercises are accompanied by movements shows that kinesthetic perceptions have a prominent role even at a very early age. This is why we have made extensive use of the stereognostic sense in our method of education. The Trinomial Cube gives the child a visual image of algebraic concepts. The Red Rods, the Pink Tower and the Brown Stairs build the muscular memory and improve the ability to make visual distinction and develop memory and reasoning power. Minds trained on these basic physical concepts help the child prepare for mathematics. The Knobbed Cylinders build the ability to observe and make distinctions; the child’s reasoning power is stimulated through noticing and correcting errors. The thumb and fingers that will be used for writing are also being strengthened as he grasps each cylinder by the knob.
