About the Author:

John Blackwood worked in mechanical engineering design for nearly thirty years. Inspired by Lawrence Edwards (author of Projective Geometry) and his work with plant geometry, Blackwood became a teacher at the Glenaeon Rudolf Steiner School in Sydney, Australia, where he designed a math course for classes 11 and 12. His ideas were adopted by the school board of New South Wales. He lives near Sydney.


'The book is a fine example of how a teacher can stimulate interest in his pupils. It is clear that [the children] have much enjoyed what they have learnt.' Ron Jarman, Archetype: Science Group of the Anthroposophical Society in Great Britain newsletter, March 2006 'A treasure trove of ideas for class teachers with additional tasks for gifted students. Impressive presentation ... which can inspire experienced and new teachers alike.' -- Hella Kettnaker, Erziehungskunst, June 2007
