**Jamie York’s 7th Grade Waldorf Math Book Set includes the 4 core books in our Making Math Meaningful® curriculum series for teaching math to 7th grade students. This set is especially for our homeschoolers. You’ll get:**

**• A Middle School Curriculum for Teachers and Parents**

**• 2 7th Grade Workbooks (Student’s and Teacher’s Editions)**

**• Fun with Puzzles, Games and More! for 4th through 12th grade.**

**The 7th Grade Year: The beginning of abstract thinking.** Seventh grade is an important year academically. This is the year when the students start to develop abstract thinking (through algebra, physics, essay writing, etc.), and when study habits are developed. Getting homework done regularly (even in small amounts), and keeping a well-organized notebook, are both very important. It is relatively common for a student to enter seventh grade weak in math, but then to “wake-up” during seventh grade, and, in the end, to enter high school quite strong in math.

How to Make Math Meaningful? That is one of the greatest challenges for math teachers – particularly in today’s world! This Source Book for Teaching Middle School Math from sixth through eighth grade provides a method of teaching that helps develop the whole human being.Download or view Making Math Meaningful Curriculum Sample Pages). Jamie York’s teaching experiences have brought him to understand that if math is to be meaningful to students, it must have these elements:

Be Developmentally Appropriate | Challenge the Students |

Work with Questions | Offer Interesting Material |

Allow for Depth | Provide the Historical Context |

*As a Waldorf math teacher, Jamie realized this type of guide was greatly needed. Making Math Meaningful® provides a developmentally appropriate, direct and logical approach to teaching 6th – 8th graders math. Each grade level and topic include numerous examples and explanations. Math should not be a series of meaningingless procedures to solve meaningless problems. It is a vehicle for developing our thinking, including our creativity and problem solving capacities.*

*Includes a working of 7th grade percents unit, major reworking of 7th grade ratios unit. Two new sections for 8th grade,calculating the Area of Four Types of Triangle, calculating the area of a Cone and Pyramid and much more!*

**What is the intention of this workbook?****Making Math Meaningful: A Source Book for Teaching Middle School Math,**a book that makes available the material I have discovered and developed while teaching middle school math for many 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.

*While most of my teaching experience is within the Waldorf school system, this workbook, as well as my whole math curriculum, can be effectively used by any teacher wishing to bring meaningful, age-appropriate material to the student.*

*From a Public Waldorf School Teacher:**Through daily practice with the Making Math Meaningful’s workbooks, my students developed an amazing fluency and knack for the nature of numbers. 100% of the my students have met their math benchmarks for our state in 6th and 7th grade. This is only one measure of the efficacy of a math program. Through using this curriculum, my students are more creative in their problem solving and critical thinking, have cultivated good work habits and have come to find that each of them is able to learn the magic of mathematics.*A.
