A Self-Pacing Program in Algebra, Volume 2.
Baltimore County Public Schools, Towson, MD.; Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore.
This self-pacing program is the result of a cooperative curriculum development project between The Maryland Department of Education and The Baltimore County Schools. Included is a teachers guide for the use of the materials. The philosophy of this approach is that of individualization of instruction wherein the student moves at a pace commensurate with his ability and background. He studies a topic, either individually or with a small group, then he takes a test measuring mastery of that material. The test is marked "complete" or "incomplete." If he "completes" the topic unit, he proceeds to the next; if not, he does some remedial work until he "completes" the topic unit. It is suggested that written progress reports be kept for each student continuously and that grades for the course be based on number of units completed. The content of this course includes systems of linear open sentences, polynomials and factoring, rational numbers and experssions, relations and functions, real numbers, complex numbers, logarithms, progressions and the binomial expansion, probability, quadratic systems, and matrices. Also included is an extensive itemized list of behavioral objectives for each topic, student assignments for each topic, and tests and keys for each topic unit. (Author/CT)
