MATHCO Inservice Manual: A Guide for the Workshop Leader.
Hardeman, Carole Hall; Laquer, Barbara T.
MATHCO is a motivating series of audiovisual and print materials designed to overcome the negative effects of sex bias and stereotyping on the attitudes, interests, and aspirations of girls toward mathematics and mathematics-related careers. The materials teach mathematics skills, demonstrate relationships between mathematics and other subjects, and provide exposure to mathematics-related careers. They are useful for boys as well as girls at the pre- and early-adolescent stage; they are both multiethnic and nonsexist in text and illustrations. This guide provides background information for workshop leaders and detailed instructions for conducting workshops. Appendices include a questionnaire and transparency masters for using MATHCO and for MATHCO objectives. (MNS)
