High School Equivalency: Mathematics. Part II: Curriculum Resource Handbook.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Special Continuing Education.
This mathematics curriculum resource handbook provides background information and techniques of instruction designed for instructors helping students to prepare themselves for the General Educational Development Tests. It consists largely of fundamental concepts which high school graduates are expected to retain, together with some techniques which may be of use in developing these concepts. Two specific although not "new," approaches to the presentation of mathematics characterize this program. The first is the importance placed on the language of mathematics as a unifying concept. The second approach is the use of manipulative devices. Wherever possible, it is desirable to use paper constructions, models, and movable figures as teaching methods. Emphasis is placed on the general area of problem solving. An annotated list of instructional materials (textbooks, workbooks, and review books) and the addresses of the publishers are included.
