When Dr. Montessori first designed this piece of equipment and commissioned the factory in Italy to produce it, she called it the Frosted Glass Decimal Board.(1)  The result was a color-coded glass surface on which a child could write numbers, make large multiplications with decimals, and easily erase them as needed.  The board was sold by Gonzagarredi until about the mid-1970s.  When the supply ended, it was decided that the product should be discontinued, because the demand was too weak and the production too costly.  Through the years, however, AMI training centers such as Bergamo, Italy continued to give the Montessori presentations of the exercises that children could do with this equipment.  We decided that a modern laminated version of this color-coded board could be made.
