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 develop confidence. It has been time tested for over 100 years by Waldorf teachers. 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 and what engages children at different stages of development. Chapters then cover the math learning journey from Grades 1-8, with tips, worked examples, exercises, questions and diagrams.

Review quote

'The most comprehensive book on mathematics I've ever seen. It's beautifully written with many illustrations and examples. In addition to general math information, Steiner philosophy and Waldorf education philosophy, the book includes chapters dedicated to each grade, 1st through 8th grade with detailed information on the methodology of teaching math, specific examples to complement the text as well suggestions on how and when to teach particular math concepts. This book is rich with insight and information. The author conveys a deep understanding of math in general and specifically for its application in Steiner schools. If you have no other book on math, this one would be adequate for writing your own math curriculum. It works perfectly to accompany a Waldorf curriculum and would be a wonderful addition to any home library for those who have a passion or interest in mathematics..... Though I use it as a reference book, I think it's definitely worth reading cover to cover.' Pepper and Pine
