Balancing the Common Core Curriculum in Middle School Education

Composing Archimedes' Lever, the Equation, and the Sentence as an Interdisciplinary Unity

This book examines the idea of ‘good education’ which is thought to include a scientific and technical component, a mathematical component, a writing component, and an ethical and aesthetic component. Bunn proposes a new three-way intersection in these teachings: the basic sciences and mechanics of levering on a seesaw, the basic formulations of patterning an algebraic equation, and the basic rules for writing a sentence in English. In all three forms of inquiry, balance is the mainstay through which problems in US middle school education are brought together and analyzed.

This book is conceived in two parts. The first, by the garden historian Robin Whalley, is a well-researched and lively account of the evolution of knot gardens from the first sketches in the fifteenth century to the somewhat bizarre version of the theme created by leading designers today.The book opens with a look at the history of the interlacing knot motif and explains the symbolism behind it. The illustrations are striking examples from Roman, Islamic, Celtic and medieval Christian decorative art. There are woodcuts from Renaissance Italy, knot gardens in splendid Tudor portraits and illustrations from both the earliest gardening manuals and modern photographs of authentic recreations.In the second part, Anne Jennings shows today's gardener how the theme can be used to create unique designs whose crisp and permanent outlines allow the garden to remain an admired feature throughout the year. Every aspect is carefully and confidently covered and illustrated both by line drawings and by inspiring photographs of contemporary schemes.This stimulating and sumptuous book will have a special place in every gardener's library.
