Secondary School Mathematics Curriculum Improvement Study. Information Bulletin 5, Why a New Program in Mathematics.
Secondary School Mathematics Curriculum Improvement Study, New York, NY.
This bulletin presents an overview of mathematics education in the sixties, both in the United States and abroad, and suggests similar trends in the seventies. It examines the revolution in mathematics in the past 100 years which led to a unifying reorganization of the subject. Specifically, the authors examine the restructuring of algebra, analysis, and geometry and claim this restructuring caused the change in mathematics education in the past decade. Also included in the bulletin are course outlines for the 5-year Secondary School Mathematics Curriculum Improvement Program (SSMCIS), lists of schools participating in the program, and an article regarding the problems of teacher education and the implementation of the program.
