An Inquiry Concerning the Core Curriculum Concept in General, the Math Based Core Curriculum Concept in Particular and a Model for the Development of a Math Based Core Curriculum.
Mullen, Kirk P.
This document was developed to stimulate others to attempt the writing of a mathematics-based core curriculum. It contains the following sections: (1) The Definition of a Core Curriculum; (2) Reasons Why One Should Use or Not Use a Core Curriculum in a Teaching-Learning Situation; (3) The Thoughts of Other Educators Concerning A Math-Based Core Curriculum; and (4) A Definition of, A Model For, and the Organization of A Math-Based Core Curriculum. The objectives for the various subject areas of this curriculum were gleaned from the fifth-grade level of various mathematics, language arts, social studies, and science guides and other educational media. It is hoped that individuals interested in African or Afro-American studies might find this material of interest. Aspects of Black Studies are intertwined into the social studies objectives for this curriculum. The document concludes with an extensive bibliography. (MP)
