[Individualizing Mathematics in the Small School.]
Gibbs, Doris; Brgoch, Ann
Two Colorado teachers' attempts to individualize mathematics instruction in grades 7 and 9 in small schools are reviewed. The seventh-grade teacher utilized multi-level textbooks in individualizing instruction. The results of the program were evaluated by the California Arithmetic Test. Grade placement for reasoning and mathematics fundamentals was recorded in September and in May; percentile standings of the students were indicated, and scores were recorded for the Sequential Tests of Educational Progress and the School and College Aptitude Tests. A final test used in evaluation was the Cooperative Mathematic Tests (Educational Testing Service). The ninth-grade mathematics teacher, who utilized programed materials in individualizing instruction, concluded that the programed-materials method of instruction reaches more students than the traditional method.
