Themes and Methods for the Teaching of Mathematics in a Waldorf School
The presentations in this book are built on experiences from mathematics teaching in grades 7-12. The book does not offer a pedagogical collection of recipes but rather how one might engage the pupils. The presentation is a pedagogical handbook. It addresses such topics as the history of mathematics, Fibonacci numbers, nature’s geometry, the step from arithmetic to algebra, and gaining confidence in thinking. Mr. Ulin takes the reader into the wonders of mathematics. This is a resource for those seeking to understand the magic of the world of numbers and how to present them to students.
