Teaching Waldorf Mathematics in Grades 1-8
Ron Jarman believes there is a maths genius in every child and adult. Educators can use this comprehensive resource to teach math with imagination, laying the foundations for life. This resource helps educators and learners develop confidence. It has been time tested for over 50 years by the author. Drawing number work from everyday life stimulates children’s interest. Ron shows how children can easily grasp math principles, so that educators are relieved of endless worksheets. Uniquely, Ron draws on Pythagoras, the ancient Greeks and Rudolf Steiner for re-imagining the vital importance of mathematical learning for human growth.
Chapters include an overview of the Waldorf Math Curriculum, math and personal development, math and education. Uniquely, Ron unpacks what engages children at different stages of development. Chapters then cover the math learning journey from Grades 1 to 8, with tips, worked examples, exercises, questions and diagrams.
