Mathematics Curriculum Guide K-8. Bulletin 1609.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge. Div. of Academic Programs.
This guide is a consequence of Act 750 of the Louisiana Legislature, which mandated the development and establishment of statewide curriculum standards for required subjects for the public elementary and secondary schools. Ten domains of mathematical content have been identified for use in this guide: (1) Sets; (2) Numeration; (3) Whole Number Operations; (4) Fractions and Operations; (5) Decimals and Decimal Operations; (6) Percent, Ratio, and Proportion; (7) Squares and Square Root; (8) Relations and Functions; (9) Measurement and Estimation; and (10) Geometry. The document has three major sections. The first section outlines suggested course content for each of grades K-8. Part two lists minimum standards for basic skills, listed under the 10 content domains. The third section lists three activities for each objective of each domain. The first activity suggested is aimed at the average learner, the second is intended to challenge the more able students, and the third activity is directed to pupils who have special needs and will profit more from hands-on experiences. It is felt that teachers should view the activities provided as tools that may be used a variety of ways to stimulate instruction. (MP)
