We list the newest videos from Jamie York first, but scroll down for others in our series.
In our NEWEST VIDEO, Jamie York compares how a mainstream textbook presents the Pythagorean Theorem, and then outlines how he introduces it, the Waldorf math way. The video includes a proof of the theorem that he uses with 10th grade students.
Jamie York’s concluding remarks about the CRISIS IN MATH EDUCATION (and transforming blind procedures into meaningful math) given during his talk to a capacity audience at the first MidSchoolMath conference in Santa Fe, NM, March 2014, where he was a presenter. CLICK HERE to see the video.
PERFECT NUMBERS. An excerpt from the same talk given in Santa Fe NM, March 2014 on the wonders of perfect numbers, and what they are.
