Experiences in Mathematical Ideas.
Allen, Charles; And Others
Developed by a committee of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, this publication is designed to help teachers provide interesting and worthwhile learning opportunities for slow learners in grades five through eight. It employs a variety of teaching strategies, many not commonly known or practiced, which are particularly helpful with slow learners. In particular, the activities suggested one of a "laboratory nature" and encourage participation by all students. The subjects covered include base and place value, renaming numbers in addition and subtraction, physical models for multiplication, units of measure, physical models for fractions, and physical models for decimals. Most of the units are independent of the others and need not be taught in any specified order nor at specified grade levels. The volume includes a "Teaching Package" containing materials which can be duplicated by the teacher for use as overheads, worksheets, or laboratory materials. (Author/CT)
