A Teacher's Approach to Adjusting Instruction in Elementary School Mathematics to Varied Ability Groups.
Barczyk, Gloria J.
This paper is concerned with developing a mathematics curriculum for the fifth grade which uses a program of varied difficulty of instruction based on "A Systems Approach to Improving Mathematics Instruction" (SAM), a program developed in the Pittsburgh area. The first portion of the paper is a general discussion of facets involved in curriculum construction. The remainder of the paper details the specific objectives, the selecting and sequencing of content, and the instructional organization of a fifth grade mathematics course. Sample materials are included: a "Curriculum Suggested Pace" which lists the basic levels of instruction as well as suggested enrichment topics for each level; behavioral objectives for each basic level; and the complete lesson plans along with teacher-constructed materials for two of the topics covered in the curriculum (fractions and negative numbers).
