In 1979, a small team at the Landesinstitut Nordrhein-Westfalen Neuss, Federal Republic of Germany, started the Didactical Information Service for Mathematics in School (DID-M). They are developing a series of books containing information on and documentation for the most important mathematics topics for grades 5-10. Chosen as the first of these topics is ratio and proportion. The curriculum book provides information for teachers to bridge the communication gap between teachers and students, informs teachers about attitudes and concept attainment, and gives hints for teachers on how to bridge the gaps and for administrators on how to renew the curriculum for better bridging the gaps. Teaching concepts are described, the actual teaching situation is discussed, research results from systematic searches are analyzed, and teaching and learning concepts are compared. The supporting documentation book provides background materials and references with abstracts. (MNS)
