Report of the Primary Mathematics Workshop (Penang, Malaysia, June 30 - July 3, 1969).
Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (Singapore). Regional Center for Education in Science and Mathematics.
A workshop to develop a program for training primary school teachers was convened in 1969 by the Regional Centre for Education in Science and Mathematics (RECSAM) in Penang, Malaysia. Countries participating in the conference were Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, South Vietnam, Thailand, Phillipines, and Ceylon; consultants from the United States and Britain were also in attendance. The major outcome of the conference was a detailed description of a course designed to improve teachers' understanding of the new content and approach to teaching primary mathematics. The course was also intended to examine philosophical, pedagogical and methodological issues related to instruction, and to prepare key personnel from participating countries to organize programs in their home states. In addition to an outline of this course, this volume includes several working papers and documents related to the overall goals and projects of RECSAM. (SD)
