Soviet Studies in the Psychology of Learning and Teaching Mathematics, Volume X: Teaching Mathematics to Mentally Retarded Children.
Clarkson, Sandra P., Ed.; And Others
This is one of a series that is a collection of translations from the extensive Soviet literature of the past 25 years on research in the psychology of mathematics instruction. It also includes works on methods of teaching mathematics directly influenced by the psychological research. Selected papers and books considered to be of value to the American mathematics educator have been translated from the Russian and appear in this series for the first time in English. The aim of this series is to acquaint mathematics educators and teachers with directions, ideas, and accomplishments in the psychology of mathematical instruction in the Soviet Union. The articles in this volume deal with the instruction in geometry and arithmetic of mentally retarded pupils in the Soviet Union. These pupils attend special schools, called auxiliary schools, where they are trained in content that can later be related to specific job skills. Authors of the articles have attempted to identify the specific knowledge that the pupils possess and to design more effective instructional methods for increasing that knowledge. (Author/MK)
