Mathematics Analysis Using a Homework Hotline.
Kordomenos, Vangalia; And Others
Elementary school mathematics programs based on textbooks can be analyzed according to mathematical concepts and skills that cause students difficulty by using a telephone assistance service. The Mobile County Public School System's (MCPSS) Homework Hotline in Alabama was used to collect data from callers requesting help with homework from September 1988 through May 1989. An analysis of the calls isolated fifth grade mathematics concepts and skills that caused callers throughout the system difficulty. Concepts and skills identified were correlated to the textbook pacing guide, the MCPSS fifth grade pacing guide, and grade level requirements based on the Alabama Course of Study, Alabama Basic Competency Test, and Stanford Achievement Test. Pacing analysis indicated a need to adjust pacing requirements so that students receive the appropriate time to master concepts and skills at grade level. (Author/LL)
