Synopsis

A Student's Workbook for Mathematics in Class 8 by Jamie York

Experienced maths teacher and consultant Jamie York believes that a love of learning comes through the teacher, so his books are committed to supporting teachers in developing their classroom skills and to fostering a love of maths in their students. Unlike conventional maths textbooks, his books are not full of fancy graphics and contrived ways to make maths fun. Rather, they: -- focus on the essentials, so teachers aren't overwhelmed by endless lists of required materials -- are genuinely interesting and challenging, sparking students' enthusiasm for learning maths -- are developmentally appropriate to the age of the child, thereby encouraging inner mathemetical awareness and thinking -- favour depth over superficiality, to avoid teaching blind procedures to solve meaningless problems. Note that the Floris Books editions of Jamie York's books have been completely revised for UK and European notation, language and metric systems. They are also suitable for use in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. This student's workbook for Class 8 contains practice questions, with room for working, on all the topics a student needs to cover in Steiner-Waldorf Class 8 (age 14-15). The book includes number bases, Pythagorean theorem, mensuration, percents and growth, and proportions and dimensional analysis. Note that this workbook is also available in a pack of ten with a teacher's answer booklet.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
