Georgia State Dept. of Education, Atlanta. Office of Instructional Services.
This eight part guide was developed to assist individuals in improving mathematics education in Georgia schools, particularly in planning curriculum at the local level. The guide was prepared on the basis of successful teaching practices and recommendations from recognized educators. Information regarding considerations unique to teaching the middle grade learner is given. In addition, issues in mathematics education today such as how to teach problem-solving, how to use technology, and how to overcome mathematics anxiety are addressed. Also included are suggestions for ways teachers can plan student activities that help middle grade learners acquire the appropriate mathematical concepts and skills. The guide is divided into five major sections: (1) developing curriculum; (2) setting instructional goals/objectives; (3) planning instruction; (4) evaluating mathematics learning; and (5) a bibliography of instructional resources. Provided in additional sections are: appendices (containing a statement on organization for the essentials of education and a National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics position paper on basic mathematics skills); a glossary; and suggested career awareness activities.
