TTT Develops a Math Laboratory. Triple "T" Project Monograph Series, No. 2.
Wilderman, Ann M.
This document is a first-person account by the mathematics coordinator at Temple University dealing with the segment of the TTT (Trainers of Teacher Trainers) project held at the Reynolds Elementary School. The stated purpose of this segment was to provide on-the-job experience in the area of elementary school mathematics. The basic program procedure is described as follows: TTT clinicians tried out contemporary teaching strategies and materials while working with fifth- and sixth-grade mathematics pupils; the classroom teachers also became involved in the planning and utilization of the mathematics laboratory; during the third year the mathematics laboratory moved to larger quarters, and the emphasis changed from assisting pupils to assisting teachers. The author defines the centralized mathematics laboratory which was used in this project as a room separate from the regular classroom, with pupils from all grades going to this laboratory for part of their mathematics instruction. Materials needed for such a laboratory are described in detail; suggestion for activities are also given. (JA)
