Are there any programs that teach math through art?

Recommended Posts

Using a Steiner/Waldorf-inspired approach to introduce new concepts might really help. While you won't find a specific curriculum per se, you could pick up a few books & browse the web for ideas. A Little Flower Garden just came out with a math book that, while I haven't seen it yet, is getting very good reviews from other Waldorf homeschoolers - she provides more specific lesson plans that may be helpful. Here's another example, also using math gnomes (I've seen squirrels used rather than gnomes too), and here's another: Gnomes and Gnumbers - there's some ideas here also. Teaching Mathematics in Rudolf Steiner Schools by Ron Jarman is a good resource as well but not cheap. If you're interested in this or need help introducing a specific topic, PM me & I can give you some other resources...
