Synopsis

A Student's Workbook for Mathematics in Class 7 A Classroom 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 7 contains practice questions, with room for working, on all the topics a student needs to cover in Steiner-Waldorf Class 7 (age 13-14). The book includes: Arithmetic review topics from previous years. New topics for Class 7: measurement, percents, ratios, rates, geometry, algebra, the square root algorithm. Mental maths: it is as important as ever for children to develop the ability to do calculations in their head. Each worksheet therefore begins with a secion on mental maths, focusing on one of our areas described in the Teacher's Source Book (available separately). Note that this workbook is also available in a pack of ten with a teacher's answer booklet.
