Continuing Mathematics; A Proposal for a Systems Approach to the Mathematical Education of Sixth-Formers Specialising in the Arts and in Social or Life Sciences.
Howson, A. G.; Eraut, M. R.
A project is proposed here which would apply a systems approach to the mathematical education of sixth-formers who are specializing in the arts or in social or life sciences. The project would develop over four years a kit of coordinated material combining four different approaches: empirical, audiovisual, discovery, and vocational. The project would include material necessary to test and revise the materials and a staff for designing the system and training teachers to use it. The proposal discusses the rationale for such a system and the contribution of such an approach to the future of educational technology and mathematics teaching. An appendix provides an illustation of a possible unit and a list of references. (JY)
