Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge. Div. of Academic Programs.
Developed by a statewide committee in response to the legislature's mandate to develop statewide curriculum standards for required subjects, this guide presents the content that should be taught in Mathematics II. It was piloted by teachers in representative school systems and subsequently revised. Seven goals for the course are listed, followed by a pacing chart suggesting the time to devote to each major topic in each of the two semesters of the course. The major topics are number concepts, operations on whole numbers, rational numbers. decimals, percent, introduction to algebra, linear equations and inequalities, coordinate system, factoring, and informal geometry. The curriculum outline and performance objectives are then listed. In the following section, sample activities are presented, with content topic and objective noted for each. A brief list of books is given, evaluation techniques are noted, and an answer key to activities is provided. (MNS)
