Mathematics in Space and Time

Grade 8 Curriculum Resource

John Blackwood



NOTE: This has been replaced by the combination edition Mathematics in Nature, Space and Time which includes both Mathematics Around Us and Mathematics in Space and Time (this book).

From the author who brought us Mathematics Around Us comes another outstanding, even beautiful, mathematics teacher’s resource, this time for Grade 8 in the Waldorf curriculum.

John Blackwood guides us through a thorough exploration of the Platonic Solids with mathematical precision and an artist’s eye for color and form. It is heartstoppingly wonderful to see and read his exposition of these forms — I’m quite sure Plato must be smiling.

He then completes the block with lessons on Rhytms and Cycles that brings alive the rhythmic relationships of both space and time. You’ll love it. More importantly, so will your student(s). Blackwood’s work is one of the most valuable contributions to the teaching of the Waldorf curriculum to have ever been published.
