Mathematics Framework for California Public Schools, Kindergarten Through Grade Eight. The Second Strands Report.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
This report of a statewide Mathematics Advisory Committee outlines the kindergarten through grade eight mathematics curriculum in terms of nine "strands": Numbers and Operations, Geometry, Measurement, Applications of Mathematics, Statistics and Probability, Sets, Functions and Graphs, Logical Thinking, and Problem Solving. Broad goals for the entire program, and specific goals for each strand, are stated. Examples are given of activities and content leading to these goals. Material in the strands is not allocated to specific grade levels, but related to the students' overall development. An algebra course for grade eight is discussed, and the 1968 state criteria for the evaluation of textbooks is reprinted in an appendix. This document is intended to be of use to writers and publishers as well as teachers. (MM)
