1969-70 Basic Mathematics Improvement Component; Regular School Year and Summer School. Final Report.
The Basic Mathematics Improvement Component, funded under Title I of the 1965 Elementary Secondary Education Act, has the following objectives: (1) to help the underachieving mathematics pupil make satisfactory progress toward raising his level of grade placement in mathematical computation, concepts, and applications; (2) to help the underachieving mathematics pupil become successful in his regular classwork; and (3) to help the underachieving mathematics pupil develop more positive motivations toward mathematics. Mathematics improvement classes met on a regular basis throughout the 39-week school year in each of the participating schools. Pupils met in small groups of four to eight pupils on an average of four 45-minute periods per week. Component pupils continued to participate in their regular mathematics classes. Pupils were selected by the various mathematics improvement teachers. Regular classroom teachers recommended pupils who experienced difficulty in their classrooms in mathematics and were likely to benefit from additional help. Seventeen public schools of the Columbus Public School District and three diocesan schools were served by this component. (Author/JM)
