Then, again, the material can be a companion in exploring the laws that regulate the most advanced arithmetic, geometry, grammar, logical analysis. And finally, children can find useful support tools and guidance for in-depth explorations as part of the most diverse fields of knowledge, such as history, geography, botany, astronomy.

The error control

Materials created for the first approaches are designed so that the error control is inherent in the material itself. This allows, even to a small child, to proceed independently by trial and error.

The conditional use is a must.
