Solid Geometry, by Harry KretzWaldorf Publications
"This little volume presents a rich and ready compendium for grade eight on Platonic solids, together with a practical and lively teaching approach, which will be welcomed by novice and old hand alike. And the teacher will find that the development set forth in this manual will enable him or her to effect the task at hand in a manner which is pedagogically effective and mathematically meaty, lucid, and meaningful."
- Amos Franciscelli, from the Foreword
The first part of this manual is a collection of plates as they might appear in a student's notebook. The second part is a teacher's guide describing some of the class activities that lead to the notebook.
