This set of 20 bulletins, plus an introduction, is designed to interpret research findings and ways they can be applied in teaching elementary school mathematics. Classroom teachers were interviewed to determine the issues they felt were most pressing in day-to-day mathematics teaching. Thus the bulletins address questions that arise out of actual classroom situations. Each bulletin begins with a question which sets the stage for the discussion that follows. Research conclusions are reflected whenever possible in the suggestions for the teacher. Suggested readings are included with each bulletin. The bulletins include five each on: (1) Mathematical Development: The Children (kindergarten topics, the concrete-abstract bridge, counting, manipulatives, and measurement); (2) Mathematical Development: The Teacher's Role (diagnosis, remediation, testing, mastery learning, evaluation, and motivation); (3) Instructional Strategies (meaning, drill, grouping, individualizing, and algorithms); and (4) Stronger Curriculum (problem solving, estimation, calculators, sequence, and textbooks).
