For the Teaching of Mathematics Volume 3


For the Teaching of Mathematics Volume 3


For the Teaching of Mathematics is a collection of articles written by Caleb Gattegno and published in various journals between 1947 and 1963.  The articles cover a range of topics related to the teaching of mathematics, including general pedagogical ideas, psychological contributions, and the teaching of elementary school mathematics. This series is indispensable for those wanting to understand the genesis of Gattegno’s break-through proposition that a Science of Education is possible, and that awareness should be its object of study.

In Volume Three the central topic is elementary mathematics. With an emphasis on Algebricks rods, topics include their history, fundamental concepts, and practical application. This volume allows the reader to follow Gattegno’s developing thoughts about the rods, from the use of color, to the importance of mathematical relationships, to the child’s concept of math.
