Middle School Mathematics Curriculum. A Report of the Orono Conference.
Beard, Earl M. L., Ed.; Cunningham, George S., Ed.
The focus of this NSF-sponsored conference was on discussion of problems which exist in mathematics education at the middle school level; and to seek some consensus as to future action. Four position papers presented to the conferences, attention to computational skills, relevance in mathematics education to meet societal needs, development of students' mathematical maturity and the establishment of a definite philosophy of mathematics education for this segment of the curriculum are among the topics discussed in these papers. A summary of the ensuing discussions by participants in the conference is also included. (JP)
