Hartl, David, Ed.; And Others
Developed during 1975-76 by 40 primary teachers and 10 elementary principals from 12 small school districts in 2 Washington counties and first used during 1976-77 in more than 20 districts, this K-3 mathematics curriculum is designed to assist district compliance with Washington's Student Learning Objectives (SLO) Law, which requires identification of student learning objectives and evaluation of each student's performance related to the attainment of the objectives. Specific learning objectives for mathematics, suggested activities, monitoring procedures and possible resources used in teaching to the objectives are presented, following the unique Small Schools Curriculum format. Mathematics goals for the entire K-12 curriculum and areas of study for K-8 are outlined. Included in the scope of the K-3 curriculum are counting (serial, objects, order), equality and inequality, reading and writing numerals, place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, story problems, common fractions, geometric shapes (square, circle, triangle, rectangle), simple graphs and measurements (time, money, linear, volume, weight, temperature).
