Teacher Planning + Laboratory Setting = An Innovative Project.
Montgomery County Public Schools, Rockville, MD.
Discussed is a three-week summer workshop-laboratory for teachers and low achievers in mathematics at the secondary level. Teacher planning, small group activities, and the use of electric calculating equipment, mathematically oriented games, and manipulative materials were emphasized. (The amount of time spent in particular activities was measured and is included in the report.) The students were given a pretest-posttest sequence of tests measuring mathematics achievement and self-concept. They also completed a questionnaire. The findings indicated that students showed an average gain of about one half year in mathematics achievement, that their self-concept with regard to mathematics increased significantly, and that none of the students' comments were unfavorable to the workshop as a whole.
