The Mathematician's Contribution to Curriculum Development.
Rising, Gerald R.
This paper consists of an address given at the Conference of Canadian Mathematicians and Mathematics Educators on June 4, 1978. The author sets the stage for concluding remarks with examples, stories, illustrated anecdotes, and observations of the influence of several "mathematicians" and "mathematics interpreters" on curriculum development. He concludes that mathematicians do have much to offer curriculum development and proceeds to list relevant strong points. The address ends with a discussion of some trouble spots that need consideration in maintaining a working relationship between mathematicians and curriculum developers. (MN)
