This guide is primarily designed to help those who are concerned with improving mathematics education in Georgia schools. The format is intended to make planning a new mathematics curriculum easier at the local level and still leave designers free to develop courses which are best suited for their students. In addition to presenting an outline entitled, Steps for Developing a Secondary School Mathematics Curriculum, the document covers: Goals of Mathematical Learning; Problem Solving; Strategies for Mathematics Instruction; Evaluating Mathematics Learning--Topics, Objectives, and Courses; and Instructional Resources. The four appendices include: (A) Organizations for the Essentials of Education; (B) Position Paper on Basic Mathematical Skills of the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics; (C) Recommendations for the Preparation of High School Students for College Mathematics Courses; and (D) Correlation of Georgia Statewide Basic Skills Test Indicator Clusters and Secondary School Mathematics Collection Objectives. The document concludes with a set of pamphlets on Careers in Mathematics, including teacher directions regarding duplication, distribution, and classroom use. (MP)
