The Imaginative Treatment of Geometry in Waldorf Education

A. Renwick Sheen, Ms.C. (Tech.)

edited by David Mitchell Newly revised edition



Geometry was my favorite of all math subjects – in large part because I was taught through drawing and proofs, not through the formulaic method that seems to be so popular right now. Mr. Sheen bases his exploration of geometry on the tenet that experience through drawing is of great value to a student, and I couldn’t agree more. His method of presentation is concerned with experience through drawing, which leads to a stimulation of the child’s imagination and understanding of logical relationships. This book is particularly valuable for teachers of grades 6-8 and is richly illustrated. New revised edition.
