STARS (Secondary Training for Alaskan Rural Students): Mathematics. Draft Copy.

Griffin, Ned; Ostrom, Robert

STARS (Secondary Training for Alaskan Rural Students) materials resulted from extensive rewriting of the Vocational Adult Secondary Training (VAST) materials produced by the British Columbia Department of Education, after those materials had been used with the 9th and 10th graders on Kodiak Island. Revision was done by teachers who had been using the materials and by an experienced Alaskan Curriculum materials consultant, and was done specifically for rural Alaskan students. The "Mathematics" student workbook is comprised of 11 units, including units on: whole numbers; fractions; ratio and proportion; decimals; percent; consumer math; measurement; perimeter; area and volume; statistics; geometry; and integer and rationals. Six of the units conclude with problem solving or word problems. Puzzles and problems are based on Alaskan situations. Answer keys are supplied for the exercises. The units are designed so that the average 9th grader should usually complete 1/2 of the material in 1 year, and 10th graders should complete all of the material. (BRR)
