Uses of Mathematics in Other Subject Areas.
Shulte, Albert P.
This is one of a series of units intended for both preservice and inservice elementary school teachers to satisfy a need for materials on "new mathematics" programs which (1) are readable with minimal instruction, (2) show the pedagogical objectives and uses of such mathematical structural ideas as the field axioms, sets, and logic, and (3) relate mathematics to the "real world," its applications, and other areas of the curriculum. This unit contains a collection of references on the application of mathematics to other subject areas in the elementary school curriculum. The major mathematical categories included are applications involving (1) number and operation, (2) measurement and approximation, (3) organization and presentation of data, (4) algebra, (5) ratio, Proportion, or comparison, (6) geometry, (7) probability and statistics, (8) proof and deductive inference, and (9) sets.
