Elementary School Mathematics--A Status Report.
Welsh, James T.
This report has two major features. First it describes the Pennsylvania Retrieval of Information for Mathematics Education System (PRIMES). PRIMES is an information system in which curriculum materials are computer-stored and are retrieved to meet the specifications of local school districts. As of 1971 there are six regional centers which provide consultative services to the school districts. The report describes briefly the use of PRIMES with regard to test and textbook selection, curriculum analysis, research capabilities, and continuing education. The second feature of the report is survey information relating to personnel, committees, instructional materials, curriculum guides, standardized tests, selection of basal text series, and plans for curriculum changes in Pennsylvania schools during 1970-71.
