A computer-assisted instruction (CAI) curriculum development project is being carried out by the Commonwealth CAI Consortium. Financed by an Elementary Secondary Education Act Title III grant, the project seeks to develop a CAI curriculum in general mathematics and algebra for use in the ninth grades of urban schools. Ninth grade teachers and mathematics educators will design the curriculum so that students in the course will spend half their time on-line; teachers will be trained to act as guides, diagnosticians, and consultants to individual students. Beginning in September of 1969, eight terminals will be placed in each of four classrooms in each of two schools; 16 pupils will use each classroom during each period, so that at peak efficiency the man-machine system will provide instruction for between 500 and 600 students. In addition, adult education and teacher in-service programs will be available in the evenings and on weekends. (Author/PB)
