Making Maths Meaningful: A Source Book for Grades 15
ISBN 9781938210204
Regular price $46.00by Nettie Fabrie, Wim Gottenbos, and Jamie York
Who can use this book? Most of the author’s teaching experience is within the Waldorf school system. Yet this source book can be effectively used by any teacher or homeschooling parent who wishes to teach meaningful, ageappropriate math.
The Math Tightrope. In teaching mathematics, perhaps like no other subject, we find ourselves walking a tightrope. If we step a bit to one side, a sizable portion of the class becomes perplexed and overwhelmed. If we correct ourselves to the other side, the quicker students get bored and the class as a whole doesn’t progress enough. For many teachers, each step along this tightrope brings up unpleasant memories from their own childhood.
As Waldorf teachers, we are aware that the teaching of math is more than just an intellectual exercise. We engage the will of the students as we use movement and rhythmical exercises to teach the times tables. Through appropriate stories, we engage the feeling realm of the students and spark their interest in math. Rudolf Steiner, the founder of the first Waldorf school, spoke of the importance of “permeating the soul with mathematics in the right way” and how a healthy relationship to mathematics can benefit the student’s later spiritual development.
Certainly, math in a Waldorf school is viewed differently and taught differently. Yet, the problems we face are often the same as in the mainstream. All too often, a class enters middle school with many of the students weak in math and saying, “I’m bad at math, and I hate it.”
Why is this so? How can we do better?
This book covers the following:
Principles of Waldorf education
Working with “struggling” students
Will our children be prepared?
Golden rules for teaching math
Topics in the math classroom
Ideas for manipulatives, movement, main lesson books, etc.
The art of teaching math

A Teacher’s Review.
I found the Lower School Source Book for Teaching Math in Grades One through Five extremely useful as a resource. It presents a fresh look at how to make math the exciting adventure that it truly is, instead of a list of procedures and skills that must be covered each year. It helped me understand the importance of giving students the opportunity to discover for themselves the magic of numbers and how they work, instead of focusing on the memorization of blind procedures. I loved how this book shifted the focus of my lessons from procedural skill building, to building a math capacity by placing the emphasis on developing a healthy sense of number, nurturing flexibility in thinking, and instilling a fearlessness for meeting new challenges. This book is a musthave if you are looking for a paradigm shift in how to educate children in a healthy way, yet it is also full of practical examples and fun math problems that you can lift right out of the book and apply directly to your lessons. While the first part of the book gives you an overview of important educational principles to keep in mind, the second part of the book gives detailed curriculum summaries and lesson topics for planning your lessons in grades one through five. I would highly recommend this Lower School Source Book for any teacher looking to deepen his or her understanding of math education in the lower grades. It has been a game changer in my teaching!

Making Maths Meaningful: A Source Book for Teaching Middle School Math (Gr 68)
ISBN 9781938210006
Regular price $49.00by Jamie York
This book is both a curriculum guide for middle school math and a source book for great ideas that enrich any teacher’s math lessons.
Included in this Source Book for Middle School Math:

 A math curriculum guideline for grades 68.
 An essential resource for use with our grades 68 workbooks.
 Contains explanations of all concepts found in the workbooks.
 Ideas for all of the Waldorf math “main lessons” in grades 68.
 Includes an 11page Introduction for the Teacher.
Who can use this book? Most of the author’s teaching experience is within the Waldorf school system. Yet this source book can be effectively used by any teacher or homeschooling parent who wishes to teach meaningful, ageappropriate math. The explanations in this book are also useful for parents (or tutors) who are helping their children in a math class that uses the curriculum laid out in this book.
Why this curriculum? When I started teaching at a Waldorf school, I was surprised to find that there were no textbooks. I was expected to create my own materials. This newfound freedom was both exciting and daunting. I proceeded to research what was happening at other Waldorf schools regarding math curriculum. I spent a great deal of time creating my own worksheets. My original question (“What should I teach?”) was soon transformed into, “What topics would best help in developing the thinking and imagination of my middle school students?”
This book is intended to share with others what I have discovered and developed during this journey.
While most of the material is not overly difficult, much of it is foreign, even for math majors. In writing this book, I have assumed that the reader may be weak in math. I hope that with some effort, even the most difficult topic is understandable.

Teachers’ Reviews of: A Source Book for Teaching Middle School Math:
I’ve been teaching many grade levels K8 over the last ten years in mainstream education (five in Waldorf education) and have had my hands on many math curricula that were adequate in teaching the basic concepts in the different mathematical strands. But I always found that the programs were lacking in creating lasting understanding, enthusiasm and confidence with numbers. I began working with Making Math Meaningful in my fifth grade classroom at Madrone Trail Public Waldorf school in Oregon, and my students and I became so interested in what they might find out about how numbers worked! This carried into the junior high years, where many student who don’t have a natural affinity for numbers often become discouraged and uninterested in math. Through daily practice with the Making Math Meaningful’s workbooks, my students developed an amazing fluency and knack for the nature of numbers. !00% of the my students have met their math benchmarks for our state in 6th and 7th grade. This is only one measure of the efficacy of a math program. Through using this curriculum, my students are more creative in their problem solving and critical thinking, have cultivated good work habits and have come to find that each of them are able to learn the magic of mathematics. Most importantly perhaps, all of my students, regardless of ability, have come face to face with math problems that have challenged them to work and rework until a solution is found, and it is this skill that has helped prepare a group of 8th graders who will begin high school with a strong knowledge of self. They have developed a set of characteristics that will help them push forward when they’re in doubt and start working through an issue that seems to have no solution in sight. Jamie York has managed to prepare a math curriculum that supports the development of the whole child. It can be used by main stream public educators as well as in the Waldorf middle school math classroom, and it has become the musthave element of our school’s very successful math program.
— Alyssum Barber, Madrone Trail Waldorf Charter School, OR, USA
I am just completing my third Waldorf class teaching cycle and have used the Making Math Meaningful curriculum guides and workbooks for this cycle. My present eighth graders have mathematical thinking skills and basic arithmetic skills that surpass my former two classes. The grades six, seven, eight workbooks are challenging for me as a class teacher and definitely for my students, but it is a delight to experience the students’ enthusiasm when they “get it” with a new concept or remember a solution method from a previous year. I taught using more main stream math textbooks in my previous classes and, while my students went on to be solid high school and college math students, they did not show the level of creative and confident mathematical problem solving that my present class has. As an experienced Waldorf math teacher, Jamie York shows a deep understanding of when and how to introduce ageappropriate material and leads the teacher through the introduction of the pedagogical basis of each theme. He avoids the possible overemphasis on teaching students math procedural skills and encourages teaching slowly and thoroughly so that students deeply absorb the material. And by helping a math or class teacher show how math is a fascinating, creative, yet quite achievable endeavor, Mr. York has helped me develop students who are on the path to becoming imaginative, analytical thinkers in high school.

I’m a 6th Grade Teacher and my students worked with your workbook this year, and I took many inspirations from your Middle School Curriculum Guide. I just wanted to let you know what a fabulous, positive experience it was. I think I found myself in that “difficult middle school spot” that teachers can get into. Parents wonder if what the class teacher offers is “enough” and how they will ever “learn” to use worksheets and such. My students have always been enthusiastic mathematicians. They loved working with the book, which we completed and are reviewing now during the past few weeks of school. I’m looking forward to using your workbooks for 7th grade as well.

Making Maths Meaningful: Fun with Puzzles, Games, and More!
ISBN 9781938210020
Regular price $28.00by Jamie York, Mich Follari, and Randy Evans
An inspirational and easytouse resource book for teachers of Grades 412 who want to add interest and engagement to maths lessons.
Are you looking for a new math challenge for your students?
Do you need a resource of ideas that will give your students the opportunity to experience the thrill of mathematics?
And, what about providing a good puzzle or game that will give everyone the understanding of true problemsolving?
Randy Evans, Mick Follari and Jamie York have combined their knowledge and skills to create a puzzle and game book that is a perfect reference for the math classroom and for middle school and high school teachers everywhere.
The Purpose of This Book
This book is intended as a resource for math teachers in grades four through twelve, in part, to supplement the normal classroom material, such as Our Making Math Meaningful^{™} middle school and high school workbooks.
There may be times when things seem to get dull and the students begin to lose their spark. It is then that the teacher knows it is time to do something different. This book provides ideas for that “something different.”
What Makes This Book Unique?
There are many math puzzle books available today. However, it can be daunting for a teacher (especially a teacher in the lower grades for whom math is not a specialty) to pick up a math puzzle book that consists of a couple hundred puzzles, and find a good one that would work well for tomorrow’s math class.
This book is specifically geared toward the teacher who needs to find an excellent puzzle or game for tomorrow’s math class. We have tried to limit the number of puzzles and games to just a few excellent ones. We have categorized the puzzles according to grade level.
More about this book:
 It is intended that all puzzles listed under the middle school years ought to be solved without the use of algebra. Several of the high school puzzles use some algebra.
 Any puzzle may also be used for grades older than what it is listed for.
 Solutions to every puzzle appears at the end of the book.
 The intention in this book is to have just a few excellent games for the teacher to choose from.
 Math Magic Tricks. These great attentiongrabbers help to develop a sense of wonder for numbers. They are especially effective in grades 57, but can also be used in the higher grades as an interesting algebra exercise to show why a given math magic trick works.
 Classroom Activities. This is a modest collection of activities that could possibly turn out to be the highlight of the year for a math class.
READ THE REVIEW IN WALDORF TODAY! by clicking HERE.
Barb, a parent, writes: If you want to make math interesting to students (they say 4th through high school, it is a great resource for anyone wanting to make math more interesting).
This book has (all segmented by grade) puzzles, games, math magic tricks, classroom activities (and of course solutions for the over 200 puzzles, games etc.
Why this book? The authors have collected very good puzzles for each grade, with the intent to provide students with the experience of a mathematical thrill, NOT just memorizing rote procedures.
Want to bring your math classes alive? sprinkle in some of these teasers… Having watched how author Jamie York creates stories and challenges for his students, it makes me wish I had teachers as interesting and engaging as this.
Bust the myths of “math is hard” and “Math is not interesting” with the puzzles in this book!!
Jamie York math is suited to Waldorf education but is known for being rigorous, and is used by homeschoolers and classroom teachers across curricula and pedagogy.

String, Straight Edge, and Shadow: the Story of Geometry
ISBN 9781938210099
Regular price $31.00by Julia E. Diggins; illustrated by Corydon Bell
This delightfully illustrated, classic 6th Grade reader recreates the atmosphere of ancient times when men, using three simple tools — the string, the straightedge, and the shadow, discovered the basic principles and constructions of elementary geometry more than two thousand years ago.
View sample pages from this book in PDF Format.
6″ x 9″, 155 pages, softcover.
This engrossing book reveals these first discoveries about elementary geometry related to the early civilizations of Mesopotamia, Egypt, and Greece. The fabric of the story is woven out of archeological and historical records and legends about the major men of mathematics. By reconstructing the events as they might have happened, the author enables an attentive reader to easily follow the pattern of reasoning that leads to an ingenious proof of the Pythagorean theorem, an appreciation of the significance of the Golden Mean in art and architecture, and the construction of the five regular solids.
Whether you are learning geometry for the first time, teaching it to your students, or parents helping your children through their first geometry course, this is a must read for everyone! You will be fascinated with the graphic illustrations and written description of how the knowledge and wisdom of so many cultures helped shape our civilization today.
Julia E. Diggins, the author of String, Straightedge, and Shadow, taught mathematics for many years in Washington, DC and completed her undergraduate work in mathematics at Trinity College in Washington. She then attended the Catholic University of America where she received an MA in psychology. While teaching mathematics in junior high school, she was awarded grants by the National Science Foundation to attend courses at Rutgers University, Boston College, and the University of Maryland where she worked with members of the Maryland University Mathematics Project on the preparation of a new curriculum. Subsequently, she began to devote herself entirely to teaching “modern” mathematics for elementary school teachers at the University of Maryland. Julia Diggins died in 1987.
A Customer’s Review: Text and Illustrations bring ancient geometry alive!
I’ve been reading several books on the history of mathematics lately. This one is the best! It makes concepts so clear by the marriage of text and illustrations. For example, I’ve read about Thales solving how high the Great Pyramid of Cheops was in two other books. This book used four diagrams and several pages of text to clearly explain how Thales answered his own question. Author Julia Diggins goes into depth on geometry but on a level children can understand.
Proceed slowly, letting your children try to solve a problem before reading about its solution. For example, pose the problem of drawing a perfect circle using a string. Once they have solved the problem or given up, read that part of the book. Then go to the beach or a park and use a volleyball pole and a rope to draw circles in the sand with your feet.
Then set them to figuring out how to divide a circle into six equal parts using the string. After they solve or give up, read that part of “String, Straightedge, & Shadow.” Let them follow the instructions and illustrations in chapter six to reproduce the results.
