OUTLINE OF MATHEMATICS- LEVELS II A AND II B FOR TALENT PRESERVATION CLASSES IN GRADE EIGHT.
Houston Public Schools, TX.
MEASUREMENT, GEOMETRY, DECIMAL FRACTIONS, AND PERCENTAGE CONSTITUTE UNIT CONTENT FOR LEVEL II-A. NO STEP-BY-STEP PROCEDURES ARE GIVEN. EACH UNIT HAS GENERAL PROCEDURAL AND CONTENT APPROACH SUGGESTIONS. THE UNIT BEGINS WITH MEASUREMENT BECAUSE MOST CLASS MEMBERS WILL BE TAKING A PRACTICAL ARTS COURSE AND WILL NEED TO BE ABLE TO MEASURE MATERIALS. TEACHERS OF PRACTICAL ARTS COURSES AND MATHEMATICS SHOULD CORRELATE INSTRUCTIONS. THE PURPOSE OF LEVEL II-B IS TO REVIEW THE PRECEDING THREE SEMESTERS' WORK AND TO MAKE MATHEMATICS USEFUL. UNDERSTANDING OF ECONOMICS IS EMPHASIZED THROUGH FIELD TRIPS AND PRACTICAL EXPERIENCES. THE FOUR UNITS INCLUDE EARNING MONEY, OWNING AND OPERATING A CAR, SPENDING WISELY, AND PLANNING, BUYING AND MAINTAINING A HOME.
