Mathematics Education in Asia and the Pacific. Final Report of the Regional Design Workshop on Mathematics Education.
National Inst. for Educational Research, Tokyo (Japan).
This report resulted from a workshop held in September-October 1983, attended by participants from 15 countries in Asia and the Pacific. Information on the present status of mathematics education in participating countries was collected through questionnaires; it is summarized in terms of background information, time allocation, objectives of mathematics, grade-wise mathematical topics, and instructional methods and aids. In chapter 2, problems and issues are summarized on curriculum content and methodology, learning resources, teacher education, assessment, research, and other pertinent areas. The third chapter identifies innovative experiences related to each of the areas in chapter 2, while chapter 4 offers suggestions for improving mathematics education in each of those areas. Lists of participants are appended. (MNS)
