The Philosophy of the Community College and Standards in a Mathematics Program.
Williams, Keith W.
Characteristics of the Miami-Dade (Florida) Junior College are presented in this paper to describe the: (1) philosophy of the community college, (2) implications of this philosophy to the mathematics program, and (3) possible solutions to specific problems. Some of the areas needing reform are: (1) the mathematical training of technicians, (2) screening and placement of students, (3) mathematics for the general education student, (4) computer assisted instruction, (5) mathematics for preservice elementary teachers, (6) the remedial student in mathematics. This paper was presented at the 1970 Annula Meeting of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. (RS)
