Hartl, David, Ed.; And Others
Developed during the 1976-77 school year to assist Washington grade 7-8 teachers in small school districts with the improvement of curriculum and instruction, this learning-objective-based curriculum suggests activities, monitoring procedures and resources for mathematics. Introductory materials describe the organization of Small School materials, relationship to Washington's Student Learning Objectives (SLO) Law, format of the curriculum guide, definitions of format terms, goals for the Washington Common Schools, mathematics program goals and the K-8 mathematics curriculum scope. The scope of the grade 7-8 curriculum includes whole numbers (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and story problems); integers; rational numbers (common fractions, ratios, percentage, proportion and decimals); real numbers; algebraic expression; numeration (number theory, scientific notation and exponents); geometry (two- and three-dimensional shapes, points, lines, line segments, angles, triangles, circles, perimeter, area and volume); graphs; probability and statistics; and measurements (time, linear, capacity, weight, temperature and maintenance of English measurement).
