Finding the Path: 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
- Gaining confidence in thinking
Mr. Ulin takes the reader into the wonders of mathematics.
