CSMP Mathematics for the Intermediate Grades Part IV, Teacher's Guide. The Languages of Strings and Arrows. Geometry and Measurement. Probability and Statistics.
CEMREL, Inc., St. Ann, MO.
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 contains the Language of Strings and Arrows; Geometry and Measurement; and Probability and Statistics. The languages are intended to provide a precise way to communicate ideas about classification and relations. The String Game is again presented to encourage critical thinking. Measurement and parallelism are included in the Geometry section of the guide. Random number stories and probability games are a part of the section on Probability and Statistics. (Author/SA)
