Grade 8 Curriculum Resource
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.
