The Revolution in School Mathematics, A Challenge for Administrators and Teachers.
National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, Inc., Reston, VA.
This monograph is an updated version of the proceedings of the eight Regional Orientation Conferences in Mathematics in various parts of the United States. The purpose of these conferences was to give school administrators and mathamatics supervisors information that would enable them to provide leadership in establishing new and improved mathematics programs. The monograph, a project of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) with the financial support of the National Science Foundation (NSF), was an effort to make this information available to all persons interested in the improvement of school mathematics programs and was designed to answer the following questions--(1) what caused the current revolution in school mathematics? (2) what has been done to implement this revolution in school mathematics? and (3) what administrative decisions are involved for local school systems? The pamphlet has specific information regarding (1) classroom experiences with the new mathematics programs, (2) implementation of a new mathematics program in schools, (3) financial aid for curriculum improvement, (4) improved mathematics programs, and (5) similarities of the new programs.
