Report of a Conference on Mathematics Education in the Inner City Schools.
Stanford Univ., CA. School Mathematics Study Group.
This conference explored ways to improve mathematics education for inner-city schools. Five position papers, together with summaries of the discussions of these papers by conference participants, are contained in this report. Topics range over types of pre- and in-service teacher training, laboratories and materials for the inner-city school, and relevant instruction as well as other pedagogical considerations. One report reviews many of the projects that have been instituted by various agencies or institutions which attempt to upgrade mathematics education in the inner-city schools. In the summary of the small-group discussions, a list is given of the recommended ways in which SMSG could contribute to the improvement of inner-city mathematics education. (JP)
