Topics in Mathematics for the 10th Grade

Robert Neumann


This 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.
