Curriculum Guide for Mathematics in Union Parish High Schools.
Caldwell, Christine, Comp.; And Others
This basic guide to a complete secondary mathematics curriculum is designed to ensure that each student will be presented uniform mathematical concepts and principles, geared to his individual needs, abilities, and interests. The guide is not planned for use with a particular textbook; instead, it is to serve as a core around which each teacher can develop his program of instruction using a wide range of supplementary materials. Two program sequences are presented, one for college-preparatory students and one for vocational students. Mathematical procedures and concepts have been developed and arranged in a learning sequence. As a student completes one phase of the program, he can move immediately to the sequence that follows. The college-preparatory sequence is a continuum with interwoven new mathematical concepts presented by rigorous methods of deductive reasoning. The vocational-preparatory continuum is developed around problems that relate to occupations and careers and provides a review of the basic fundamentals of mathematics. Behavioral objectives are stated and resource books are listed for topics. (JP)
