A Proposal For The Development of Materials Of Instruction For A General Mathematics Curriculum In Grade Nine. Final Report.
Rogler, Paul V.
The purpose of this project was the development of a program that would provide for teaching important ideas of general mathematics in a spiral development, that is, a great variety of topics should be included at each level, with each higher level including more advanced stages of the development of each topic. Topics to be considered are fundamental operations with real numbers, mathematical structure, topics in algebra, informal geometry, logic, measurement, probability, statistics, business mathematics, shop mathematics, occupational mathematics, and consumer mathematics. The project staff which consisted of three teachers and a director, produced a program called the Wilmington Operational Mathematics Program that can be used as a basis for the teaching of ninth grade general mathematics.
