School Mathematics Study Group Report No. 1, The Programed Learning Project.
Chinn, William G.; And Others
This manual is written for programers whose specific assignment is the preparation of programed texts in mathematics based on the work of the School Mathematics Study Group (SMSG). Detailed information regarding the attempt to program the SMSG ninth grade course, "First Course in Algebra," is provided. Reported are (1) information on "The Manual for Programmers," which was drafted for use in a summer workshop and by writing teams, (2) the workshop which was arranged to acquaint a core of writers with programed instructional materials and the preparation of sample units, and (3) the mode of operation of each of the twelve writing centers consisting of mathematicians and/or mathematics teachers. The result of this project was the production of the SMSG "Programed First Course in Algebra" which was field tested in the 1962-63 academic year in several schools throughout the country. (RP)
