Modern Mathematics and Your Child.
Phillips, Harry L.; Kluttz, Marguerite
This guide for parents explains the objectives of the modern mathematics being taught in the schools and discusses the teaching methods being used. A few of the elementary concepts of modern mathematics (number lines, searching for patterns, different ways of analyzing problems, number bases, and sets) are briefly explained and justifications are given for their inclusion in the modern mathematics curriculum. Short descriptions of the Madison Project, Suppes' Projects, University of Illinois Committee on School Mathematics (UICSM), School Mathematics Study Group (SMSG), the College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB) Commission's Recommendations, the Ball State Program, and the University of Maryland Mathematics Project are given along with a brief explanation of the National Defense Education Act (NDEA), Title III. Eleven suggestions of ways parents may help their children in learning modern mathematics and a reading list of 14 books are included in the final sections. (DT)
