A deep exploration into Waldorf middle school math for class and specialty teachers, this course will inspire you to approach sixth, seventh, and eighth grade algebra and geometry in new ways. You’ll learn how to consider math observationally and experientially, will gain practical knowledge in such topics as algebraic equations, Pythagorean Theorem, and platonic solids, and will acquire hands-on skills in using geometric tools. You’ll also discover how to meet the early adolescent by balancing the content of the curriculum with developing capacities of thought.
Instructor Uli Stuerznickel is middle school and high school math teacher at Santa Fe Waldorf School (NM), where she has been on the faculty for the past eight years and sits on the College of Teachers. Uli previously taught at the Tucson Waldorf School (AZ).
