Indian mathematician and astronomer Aryabhata has
invented the number zero.
The meaning of zero is not anything or No objects
Zero is written in the shape of Egg.
If it were not for zero, the numbers 205 and 25 would
The difference between 0 and other numbers is that all
of the other numbers have a tangible visual form,
whereas 0 does not. Some children really struggle to
understand that 0 means nothing.
Spindle Box(Montessori Method)
This is Montessori method used to introduce
numbers to kids.
Point to the number 1. Have the child read it and then say, “We will put 1 spindle in this
Place one spindle in the compartment.
Repeat for 2, counting the spindles as you place them, “One, two.” Continue this up to
Once all of the spindles have been placed, look at compartment 0 and notice that
there is nothing in it.
Say, “This is zero. Zero means nothing. That is why there is nothing in this spot.
Questions to be asked:
How many apples are on each of these trees?
And circle the trees that have no apples.
Teacher : You come “Zero” times.
Child : How can I come to you “Zero” times?
Teacher : "You must not move. You must not come
even once. 'Zero' means no times at all!"
VALUE OF ZERO
Basically individual zero don’t have any value.
But after the placement of any number it has more
Like 10 , 20 , 30 etc.,
The increase of number of zero’s in after any number it
has most valuable.
Like 100,200,1000 etc.
I Would like to express my special thanks of gratitude
to my teachers as well as our Principle Mrs.SADAF
mam, who gave me golden opportunity to do this
wonderful project on the topic “INTRODUCTION TO
THE CONCEPT OF ZERO”. The project also helped me
in doing a lot of research and I came to know about so
many new things. I am really thankful to everybody
who shared my work.
I am making this project not only for marks but to
increase my knowledge.
