Based on teaching practices in Waldorf schools
The series Mathematics for the High School 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 insights -- for courses that have perhaps been taught many times
This book contains experienced teachers' suggestions for lesson blocks covering topics taught in the 11th grade in the Waldorf curriculum. Themes include:
- Analytical Geometry
- Projective Geometry
- Spherical Geometry
- Sequences and Limits
The emphasis is on projective geometry, since this topic is not very familiar to most teachers.
The material is not only described theoretically, but includes many examples, exercises and "hands-on" hints for the lesson. Some information about the historical background of the major themes rounds out many of the contributions.
