ARITHMETIC, FIRST YEAR. (TITLE SUPPLIED.)
GARBER, CLAIRE N.
A GROUP OF REPRESENTATIVES FROM FIVE SCHOOLS MET FOR TWO WEEKS TO DISCUSS MEANS OF IMPROVING ARITHMETIC TEACHING. THE CONTENT OF EACH GRADE WAS EXAMINED. THE PURPOSE WAS TO DETERMINE VARIOUS APPROACHES TO MOTIVATE BETTER LEARNING. NOTES OF THESE MEETINGS HAVE BEEN REPRODUCED AND SUGGESTIONS FOR TEACHERS OFFERED. TEACHERS SHOULD PROVIDE MANY OPPORTUNITIES EVERY DAY FOR CHILDREN TO LEARN SUCH TERMS AS "MORE,""FEW,""MANY,""LITTLE," AND "BIT," EVEN BEFORE THEY CAN COUNT. COUNTING MAY BE INTRODUCED BY THE ROTE SAYING OF NUMBER NAMES IN ORDER OR SEQUENCE. A UNIT ON THE NUMBER SYSTEM SHOULD BE FOLLOWED WITH ONE ON WHOLE NUMBERS, WITH EMPHASIS ON ADDITION AND SUBSTRACTION. SUGGESTIONS ARE MADE AS TO THE SEQUENTIAL DEVELOPMENT OF IDEAS IN THIS UNIT. TO FAMILIARIZE STUDENTS WITH THE USE OF NUMBERS, HELPFUL ACTIVITIES INCLUDE WORK WITH U.S. MONEY, FRACTIONAL PARTS, MEASUREMENTS, GRAPHS AND CHARTS, AND GEOMETRIC FIGURES. SPECIFIC TEACHING TECHNIQUES ARE SUGGESTED FOR EACH UNIT AND SUBUNIT.
