series, "Mathematics for the High School," in mathematics was
specifically designed with math teachers in mind. Not only are the books
a useful resource for gaining familiarity with teaching approaches used
in a Waldorf school, but they are also a source of inspiration –
offering fresh perspectives and new insight – for course that have
perhaps been taught many times.
This book contains experienced teachers' suggestions for lesson blocks covering topics taught in the 10th grade in the Waldorf curriculum.
- Sine, Cosine, and tangent
- 10th grade trigonometry
- Surveying in the 10th grade
- Higher calculations
- Logarithms and logarithmic spirals
- Pascal's triangle and related geometry
- Numerical relationships in music
- The method of resection
The material is not only described theoretically, but includes many examples, exercises and "hands-on" hints for the lessons. Some information about the historical background of the major themes rounds out many of the contributions.
