Elementary School Mathematics: A Guide to Current Research. Third Edition.
Glennon, Vincent J.; Callahan, Leroy G.
Studies concerning the curriculum, the child, the learning environment, and teaching methods are covered in the four parts of this guide to current research in the elementary school mathematics. Subjects of the first part include the sources of the curriculum, the relationship of Piaget's work in child development to achievement in mathematics, Cuisenaire materials, innovative programs, kindergarten programs, and comparison of U.S. and foreign programs. Readiness, conceptualization, and achievement of normal, gifted, mentally retarded, and culturally deprived children are discussed in Part II. Their attitude, anxiety, emotional disturbance, personality, and self-concept in relation to mathematical learning are also considered in Part II. Part III explores class size, groups, time allotment, textbooks, teacher training, and inservice education. Approaches to instruction, motivation, diagnosis, mental growth, programed instruction, and methods of teaching segments of mathematics are the subjects considered in Part IV. (DO)
