CICIARELLI, V; LEONARD, JOSEPH
A SEQUENTIAL MATHEMATICS PROGRAM BEGINNING WITH THE BASIC FUNDAMENTALS ON THE FOURTH GRADE LEVEL IS PRESENTED. INCLUDED ARE AN UNDERSTANDING OF OUR NUMBER SYSTEM, AND THE BASIC OPERATIONS OF WORKING WITH WHOLE NUMBERS--ADDITION, SUBTRACTION, MULTIPLICATION, AND DIVISION. COMMON FRACTIONS ARE TAUGHT IN THE FIFTH, SIXTH, AND SEVENTH GRADES. A FRACTION IS DEFINED AS A PART OF A WHOLE OBJECT OR GROUP. A GRAPHIC ILLUSTRATION AND A NUMBER LINE ARE USED. EQUIVALENT AND REGROUPING FRACTIONS ARE TAUGHT AS WELL AS THE BASIC OPERATIONS. THE USE OF COMPARISONS, RATIOS, AND PROPORTIONS ARE TAUGHT IN THE SEVENTH GRADE, AND PERCENTS AND DECIMAL FRACTIONS IN THE SIXTH AND SEVENTH. PROBLEM SOLVING AND GEOMETRY ARE COVERED IN THE SEVENTH GRADE. UNITS OF MEASUREMENT AND OPERATIONS ARE TAUGHT IN THE FIFTH THROUGH THE SEVENTH GRADES. ALEGEBRAIC SYMBOLS ARE INTRODUCED IN THE EIGHTH GRADE, AND SIMPLE EQUATIONS, EQUATIONS INVOLVING TWO OR MORE OPERATIONS TO REACH A SOLUTION, DIRECTED NUMBERS, AND GRAPHING ARE STUDIED. THE NINTH GRADE INCLUDES THE LANGUAGE OF STATISTICS, AN INSURANCE UNIT USING PERCENTAGES AND STATISTICS, AND AN INTRODUCTION TO SET THEORY. A DIAGNOSTIC TEST IN MATHEMATICS, CONSTRUCTED IN ANTICIPATION OF AN UPGRADED SITUATION IN THE SEVENTH GRADE, IS INCLUDED. THE PRIMARY PURPOSE IS TO LOCATE THE APPROPRIATE ACHIEVEMENT LEVELS OF THE SEQUENTIAL MATH PROGRAM ON WHICH A CHILD IS OPERATING.
