BUILDINGS AND FACILITIES FOR THE MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES.
FRAME, J. SUTHERLAND; MCLEOD, JOHN W.
THIS BOOK IS CONCERNED WITH THE PLANNING AND DESIGNING OF FACILITIES FOR THE MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES IN COLLEGES, UNIVERSITIES, AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS. IT IS INTENDED FOR THREE GROUPS--(1) MATHEMATICIANS, (2) ARCHITECTS, AND (3) ADMINISTRATORS. PART ONE PRESENTS BROAD CONCEPTS IN THE PLANNING OF FACILITIES FOR MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES. INCLUDED ARE TRENDS IN INSTITUTIONS, JOB OPPORTUNITIES, STUDENT ENROLLMENT, TEACHER SHORTAGES, AND THE FINDINGS OF THE PROJECT QUESTIONNAIRE. SAMPLE ANALYSES OF SPACE NEEDS FOR THE MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES IN SMALL, MEDIUM, AND LARGE-SIZED INSTITUTIONS AND APPROPRIATE ARCHITECTURAL SOLUTIONS ARE PRESENTED. PART TWO PRESENTS DETAILED CONSIDERATIONS INVOLVED IN PLANNING INSTRUCTIONAL AREAS, STUDY AND RESEARCH AREAS, ADMINISTRATIVE AND PUBLIC AREAS, AND DEPARTMENTAL LIBRARIES FOR THE MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES. ALSO EXAMINED IS THE GROWTH, ORGANIZATION, FUNCTION, LOCATION, AND PROTECTION OF THE MODERN COMPUTATION CENTER, INCLUDING AN ANALYSIS OF THE VARIOUS AREAS AND FACILITIES REQUIRED. PART THREE ANALYZES THE NEEDS FOR SPACE AND FACILITIES FOR MATHEMATICAL INSTRUCTION IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS, EXAMINED IN THE LIGHT OF ENROLLMENT TRENDS, TEACHER SHORTAGES, COURSE CONTENT IMPROVEMENT STUDIES, AND NEW INSTRUCTIONAL PROCEDURES. THE NEEDS INCLUDE APPROPRIATE FACILITIES FOR CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION, MATHEMATICAL LABORATORIES AND AREAS FOR INDIVIDUAL STUDY, LIBRARY, STORAGE AND PREPARATION AREAS, AND OFFICES FOR TEACHERS AND DEPARTMENTAL ADMINISTRATION. PART FOUR IS CONCERNED WITH SOME OF THE IMPORTANT EQUIPMENT AND FACILITIES FOR MATHEMATICAL INSTRUCTION IN COLLEGES AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS. DISCUSSION INCLUDES CHALKBOARDS, OVERHEAD PROJECTORS, FACILITIES FOR REAR-SCREEN PROJECTION, FILMS, TELEVISION, MODELS AND OTHER VISUAL AIDS AND PROGRAMED INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS. COPIES OF THIS DOCUMENT MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE CONFERENCE BOARD OF THE MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES, 2100 PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE, WASHINGTON, D.C. 20037, FOR $2.00 POSTPAID. (RK)
