Tentative Outlines of a Mathematics Curriculum for Grades 7, 8, and 9. SMSG Working Paper.
Stanford Univ., CA. School Mathematics Study Group.
This document is the report of a curriculum writing session. Using the recommendations and suggestions of the planning conference (SE 012 733), the writers produced detailed outlines for the grade seven through nine curriculum. The purpose and rationale of each unit are stated, and the separate sections outlined. Sample exercises are included for most units. The aims of making mathematics more relevant to real world problems, and of avoiding excessive abstraction and rigor, are continually stressed. Also included are three general reports on geometry, real analysis, and mathematical models; several position papers on specific topics; and a comparison of the new syllabus with the "first round" curriculum.
