INTERPRETING MODERN MATHEMATICS GRADES KINDERGARTEN THROUGH SIX.
San Diego County Dept. of Education, CA.
A TELEVISION SERIES ENTITLED "INTERPRETING MODERN MATHEMATICS" IS SPONSORED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION OF SAN DIEGO COUNTY AS AN INSERVICE EDUCATIONAL SERVICE FOR TEACHERS OF GRADES KINDERGARTEN THROUGH SIX. THE SERIES IS NOT INTENDED TO OFFER A COMPREHENSIVE COURSE IN MODERN MATHEMATICS, BUT RATHER TO DEAL WITH THE CONTENT, MATERIALS, AND METHODS OF TEACHING THE COURSE. PROGRAMS CONSIST OF DISCUSSIONS AND DEMONSTRATION LESSONS FOLLOWED BY PANEL DISCUSSIONS OF CURRENT ISSUES. THE CONTENT OF THE SERIES IS BASED UPON THE REPORT OF THE CALIFORNIA ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON MATHEMATICS WHICH RELATES THE ESSENTIAL STRANDS OF MATHEMATICS THAT SHOULD BE INCORPORATED IN THE ELEMENTARY GRADES. THE STRANDS ARE--NUMBER SYSTEMS AND OPERATIONS, GEOMETRY, MEASUREMENT, APPLICATIONS OF MATHEMATICS, FUNCTIONS AND GRAPHS, SETS, THE MATHEMATICAL SENTENCE, AND LOGIC. A GUIDE HAS BEEN PREPARED TO PROVIDE THE TEACHERS WITH RESOURCE MATERIALS AND ADVANCE INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROGRAMS IN THE TELEVISION SERIES. THE FIRST RESOURCE SECTION CONTAINS BACKGROUND MATERIAL AND OUTLINES OF PROGRAM 1-13. AN ABSTRACT OF SOME MAIN FEATURES OF THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE'S REPORT IS ALSO INCLUDED. OTHER IMPORTANT SECTIONS OF THE GUIDE PRESENT--AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY OF EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAMS AND SUPPLEMENTARY MATERIALS IN MODERN MATHEMATICS, A LIST OF RECENTLY PUBLISHED MATERIALS, SELECTED REFERENCES IN MODERN MATHEMATICS, AN ANNOTATED LIST OF MATHEMATICS MATERIALS INCLUDING SELECTED FILMS AND FILMSTRIPS, AND CRITERIA FOR EVALUATING MATH TEXTBOOKS.
