Secondary School Advanced Mathematics, Chapter 1, Organizing Geometric Knowledge, Chapter 2, Concepts and Skills in Algebra. Teacher's Commentary.
Stanford Univ., CA. School Mathematics Study Group.
This manual was designed for use with the first of five texts in the Secondary School Advanced Mathematics (SSAM) series. Developed for students who have completed the Secondary School Mathematics (SSM) program and wish to continue their studies in mathematics, this series is designed to review, strengthen, and fill gaps in the material covered in SSM. The first text is devoted to the organization of geometric knowledge in a deductive system, and a rigorous postulational development of the real number system and its properties. This manual sets out the objectives, assumptions, and mathematical developments underlying each chapter. Detailed answers are provided for most questions and problems in the text, and topics for classroom discussion, as well as other activities, are suggested. (SD)
