Mathematics, poetry and beauty
Here are a few chapters from the English translation.
Arithmetic for Parents
In 2004 I published “Arithmetic for Parents”, a book for grownups on children’s mathematics. It was a best seller, and has had non negligible impact on mathematical education in Israel. Its principles are: systematic teaching, concrete experimentation, putting math before didactics, and using precise terminology. All of these seem to have been assimilated in the Israeli mathematical education during the last decade.
The book is divided into three parts: mathematical principles, didactic principles and the mathematical material.
An English version was published by Sumizdat, 2008. Here are a few sample chapters and pages.
