What is the intention of this workbook? The sheets found in this workbook are designed for use as homework assignments during the 8th grade year. The whole thing emerges from a carefully thought out, developmentally-based math curriculum, which is fully described in my book, Making Math Meaningful – A Middle School Math Curriculum for Teachers and Parents, a book that makes available the material I have discovered and developed while teaching middle school math for several years in a Waldorf school. This material is both exciting and age-appropriate for developing the minds of this age group. It is an alternative to the normal “they-need-all-this-stuff-in-order-to-stay-ahead” approach.
Required reading. It is necessary to read Making Math Meaningful – A Middle School Math Curriculum for Teachers and Parents to fully understand the material in this workbook. Teacher’s guides and Student Workbooks are also available for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade.
Who can use this workbook? While most of my teaching experience is within the Waldorf school system, any teacher, who wishes to bring meaningful, age-appropriate material to their students, can use this workbook.
