New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of General Education Curriculum Development.; State Univ. of New York, Albany.
This guide is the seventh teachers' guide developed by the Division for Curricular Services and the Bureau of Mathematics Education in cooperation with the Division of Federal Education Opportunity Programs, ESEA Title I. It contains 100 mathematics activities within 37 pages for primary students. The activities are planned for teachers to use with children who have had difficulty with mathematics in traditional programs. Using the mathematics laboratory approach, children can actively engage in measuring, recording, estimating, and weighing in metric units. Each activity includes: (1) a suggested grade level; (2) a statement of purpose; (3) a list of familiar classroom objects and metric devices to use; (4) a set of procedures to follow; and (5) questions to guide the teacher and students through the activities. Sample charts and illustrations are interspersed throughout the manual. (SA)
