Comprehensive School Mathematics Program, Basic Program Plan.
CEMREL, Inc., St. Ann, MO.
This document reports the present status of the Comprehensive School Mathematics Program (CSMP). Three major components are described: (1) the criteria used for content selection and the role of staff and consultant mathematicians in its analysis; (2) the rationale for choosing the activity packages, organizational plans for producing and testing the materials, and preliminary results of the pilot testing of Grade 3 packages; and (3) the objectives, structure and production of a course intended for the upper 20 percent of the high school population, which stresses the use of formal logical language. An appendix contains a sample mathematician's outline, a sample activity sequence outline, and a sample activity from the Activity Package Program. A second extensive appendix details the contents of the books for the Elements of Mathematics Program. Other appendices list staff, conferences and materials produced to date. (MM)
