Arithmetic and Algebra in the Schools: Recommendations for a Return to Reality.
Ailles, Douglas S.; And Others
The aim of this report is to suggest aspects of mathematics education that should be incorporated into curricula rather than to outline specific courses of study. General recommendations are made regarding curriculum, instructional methods, and textbooks. The suggestion that graphs and relations to be used as a unifying theme is followed by specific topics to be included at both elementary and secondary levels. Topics are developed in vector spaces and trigonometry; principal objectives are identified and some means by which they may be achieved are suggested for elementary algebra. Appendices include approaches for teaching tangents, the circular functions, graphing, and linear systems, and comments are made on recent developments in elementary mathematics. A bibliography of 147 references is provided. (DT)
