Soviet Secondary Schools for the Mathematically Talented.
Vogelli, Bruce Ramon
Efforts of Soviet educators to identify and develop mathematics talent through the establishment of secondary schools offering specialization in computer programing and mathematics are reported. The following programs are described: organization and results of the experimental class which began in September 1959 to offer a specialization in mathematics and computer programing; the goals, curriculum, and special features of current computer-programer secondary schools; teacher education programs for computer programing; mathematics and physics boarding schools; and part-time study programs in mathematics. Results of the development of these special mathematics programs indicated are that they are worthwhile although their immediate contribution is negligible compared to their potential. Appendixes list syllabi used in the programs. (SP)
