Inservice Guide for MNCP Units. Teacher's Guide.
San Francisco State Univ., CA.
The seven units developed for the Math Network Curriculum Project (MNCP) incorporate an active approach to the study of mathematics using microcomputers. The intent is to have students explore new concepts by experimenting with different situations. Most teachers of mathematics have not learned mathematics in an active way, and thus need to experience the approach they will be expected to use with students. The Inservice Guide is intended to serve as a tool for a master teacher to introduce middle school teachers to the seven units and thus to an active approach to learning mathematics. It first reviews the MNCP philosophy and inservice plans. Then each unit is discussed in detail, so the teacher learns how to use it with students. (MNS)
