Abstract/Notes: Mathematics is a school subject which causes students the greatest problems, sometimes throughout their entire school experience. Unsatisfactory learning outcomes in mathematics have been observed worldwide for a number of years, and the lack of or poor mathematical skills make it impossible for many students to cope with the ever increasing demands of modern life. In view of this alarming situation, constant attempts are being made to modify and reform mathemati­cs education curricula in order to improve their effectiveness. The present study explores the difficulties faced by students in learning mathematics. Attention is given to the types and effects of failures in mathematics education. In the context of these problems, the Montessori method is recommended as an alternative. The main assumptions of the Montessori pedagogy are presented, with a special emphasis on the development material. The greatest prominence is given to sensory and mathematical materials, providing their brief characterization and pointing to their high educational effectiveness. In order to bring the characteristics of Montessori’s organizational forms closer (forms of students’ work) the three-stage-lesson is presented. The lesson involves presenting the names connected with the typical developmental Montessori method with the use of Golden Bead Material. The concluding section highlights the didactic effectiveness of Montessori pedagogy in the domain of mathematics education. It is stressed that students who have been educated in Montessori schools work eagerly with mathematical materials and independently. They achieve educational success, acquire new skills and see that mathe­matics can be easy and pleasant to learn. / Matematyka jest przedmiotem, który sprawia uczniom najwięcej problemów nieraz przez całe życie szkolne. Od lat obserwuje się na całym świecie niezadawalające wyniki nauczania tego przedmiotu, a brak lub zbyt niski poziom umiejętności matematycznych nie pozwala wielu uczniom sprostać rosnącym wymaganiom życiowym. Taka niepokojąca sytuacja implikuje podejmowanie ustawicznych prób modyfikacji i reformowania programów edukacji matematycznej zmierzających w kierunku większej ich skuteczności. W pracy podjęto problem trudności dzieci w uczeniu się matematyki. Zwrócono uwagę na rodzaje i skutki niepowodzeń w edukacji matematycznej. W kontekście tych zagadnień, jako alternatywę zakomenderowano edukację metodą M. Montessori. Omówiono główne założenia pedagogiki montessoriańskiej ze szczególnym uwzględnieniem materiału rozwojowego. Największą uwagę poświęcono materiałom sensorycznym i matematycznym, dokonując krótkiej ich charakterystyki oraz wskazując wysoką skuteczność edukacyjną. W celu przybliżenia specyfiki montessoriańskich form pracy ucznia przedstawiono trzystopniową lekcję nazw dotyczącą charakterystycznej dla metody Montessori pomocy rozwojowej, zwanej „złotym materiałem”. W zakończeniu wskazano efektywność dydaktyczną pedagogiki Montessori w obszarze edukacji matematycznej. Podkreślono, że uczniowie w placówkach montessoriańskich chętnie i samodzielnie pracują z materiałami matematycznymi. Doświadczają sukcesów, nabywają nowe umiejętności i przekonują się, że matematyka może być łatwa i przyjemna.

Abstract/Notes: In contrast to intellectual giftedness reflected in high academic performance and often measured by IQ tests, there is growing recognition that other forms of giftedness exist. This paper focuses on creative giftedness, defined as high potential to produce work that is original and context appropriate. After a brief introduction to the psychological basis of creative giftedness, the role of school context in the development of creative potential is highlighted. Then an empirical study suggesting that creative potential is influenced by educational context is presented; pupils attending traditional and Montessori schools in France were compared on a set of creativity tasks in both the graphic and verbal domains. Cross-sectional and longitudinal analyses were conducted as children were seen at two measurement occasions, with approximately one year delay. Results indicated greater scores on measures of creative potential for children in the Montessori context. The discussion situates the results in a broader context of issues concerning the development of creative giftedness through education.
