ROGLER, PAUL V.
THIS PROJECT PROVIDES A PROGRAM FOR THE EDUCATION OF NINTH GRADE STUDENTS IN GENERAL MATHEMATICS. THE PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT IS (1) TO WRITE UNITS OF WORK THAT INCORPORATE PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS FROM THE EVENTS AND AFFAIRS OF URBAN LIFE, (2) TO SEEK OUT PROBLEMS FROM LOCAL INDUSTRY, AND (3) TO PROVIDE DIFFERENTIATED ACTIVITIES AND EXERCISES THAT APPEAL TO THE INTERESTS AND ABILITIES OF THE VARIETY OF STUDENTS THAT ARE FOUND IN NINTH GRADE GENERAL MATHEMATICS CLASSES. TO ACCOMPLISH THESE OBJECTIVES, THE DIRECTOR AND THREE TEACHERS WORKED TOGETHER FOR SIX WEEKS, WRITING UNITS ON (1) CARPENTRY, (2) MATHEMATICS IN SPORTS, (3) SCIENCE, (4) WORLD OF WORK, (5) PRACTICAL NURSING, (6) BUSINESS EXPERIENCE, (7) GEOMETRY, (8) SETS AND PROBABILITY, (9) A MODERN FACTORY, (10) TRAVEL, AND (11) ALGEBRA. EACH STUDENT IS PROVIDED WITH SUFFICIENT BASIC MATERIALS FOR USE AS NEEDED. TEACHERS' COPIES OF THE PROGRAM PROVIDE MANY TEACHING SUGGESTIONS AND A NUMBER OF TRANSPARENCIES FOR USE WITH THE UNITS. MATERIALS WERE PROVIDED FOR FIVE EXPERIMENTAL CLASSES AND ARE PRESENTLY IN USE. THE FIVE TEACHERS WHO ARE USING THE MATERIALS ARE MEETING PERIODICALLY DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR TO EVALUATE AND REWRITE THE UNITS AS NECESSARY. (RP)
