Middle School Math Worksheets
updated March 24, 2019
Recorded here is my own personal collection of articles, resources, favorite links, teaching ideas, and lesson plans. It encompasses many years, from the very beginning of my experience studying and learning about Waldorf to the present time. People from all around the world visit my site and recommend it to others. Welcome!
This site records my journey. I hope my honesty is encouraging and helps break down some barriers that may prevent people from trying Waldorf methods. Because this is an ongoing site documenting my curriculum planning and ideas, some materials are more Waldorfy than others. Please feel free to take what you like and leave the rest.
Middle School Math Worksheets
for Class 6, 7, 8
Mission Statement  Consulting Services  Lending Library
Without exception, I would recommend Jamie York's excellent book for Middle School Math.
Making Math Meaningful : A Middle School Math Curriculum for Teachers and Parents
Jamie recommends math homework every night, two math main lesson blocks during the course of the school year, and an afternoon math class several times a week for further
reinforcement and practice. There are lots of great math books, and I've compiled a list of my recommendations, but this
page of the website focuses on worksheets which would be suitable for math practice.
NOTE: I like these FREE Homework Scorecards which ask students to selfassess their work. (Mon  Thu)

and Subtraction Secrets for the younger children, to

I discovered that the formatting on this didn't translate well to my Mac but it's an editable Word doc, so I moved things around. I put step one on the first page and then left the rest of the page
blank so the kids could draw the outline of a large witch's cauldron. I put the remaining questions on page two. This worksheet is difficult and requires changing to a common denominator of 15 for step seven
(answer is 79/15 which simplifies to 5 4/15),
and then changing to a common denominator of 30 for step eight (answer is 2 29/30).
