Experiences in Mathematical Discovery, Unit 6, Mathematical Thinking.
National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, Inc., Reston, VA.
This is the sixth in a series of ten self-contained units designed for use by students in ninth grade general mathematics classes. This unit is divided into eight sections dealing with different types of mathematical thinking. Some topics presented include functions, permutations and combinations, symmetry, inductive thinking, and logic. Though the topics are standard they are dealt with in non-traditional methods emphasizing discovery learning. Included are many diagrams, exercises, and topics for discussion. (CT)
