CSMP Mathematics for the Intermediate Grades Part IV, Teacher's Guide. General Introduction. Workbooks. Experimental Version.
Armstrong, Richard; And Others
This guide represents the final experimental version of a pilot project which was conducted in the United States between 1973 and 1976. The ideas and the manner of presentation are based on the works of Georges and Frederique Papy. They are recognized for having introduced colored arrow drawings ("papygrams") and models of our numeration system (the Papy "minicomputer") into the teaching of mathematics at the elementary and secondary level in Belgium. This program follows the "spiral approach." This guide includes the general introduction and the workbooks. Six workbooks are presented which should offer students the opportunity to review ideas they have met before, apply their knowledge to new situations, and learn to read by using mathematics workbooks and story workbooks. The workbooks are written at three levels of difficulty and students are encouraged to work at the easiest level. Questions most frequently asked by teachers about the program are answered in this guide. (Author/SA)
