1965 HARVARD-BOSTON SUMMER PROGRAM, MATHEMATICS CURRICULUM REVISED UNIT OUTLINE.
THE CURRICULUM CONSISTS OF FOUR MAJOR TOPICS--EQUATIONS, FUNCTIONS, GRAPHING, AND SIGNED NUMBERS. EACH TOPIC CAN BE INITIATED INDEPENDENTLY AND BUILT CUMULATIVELY THROUGHOUT THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL GRADES. THE TOPICS ARE DEVELOPED LARGELY THROUGH GAMES AND/OR LESSONS DESIGNED TO HELP PUPILS DISCOVER "SECRET" PATTERNS OR DEVELOP TENTATIVE HYPOTHESES. "NEW MATH" VOCABULARY IS KEPT TO A MINIMUM. THE INTENTION IS NOT TO TEACH ARITHMETIC PER SE, BUT TO INCORPORATE IT INTO THE CURRICULUM TO GIVE PUPILS ARITHMETIC PRACTICE IN AN INTERESTING, LIFE CONTEXT.
