The NIE Conference on Basic Mathematical Skills and Learning (Euclid, Ohio, October 4-6, 1975). Volume I: Contributed Position Papers.
National Inst. of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
In October 1975 a conference was convened in Euclid, Ohio, by the Basic Skills Group of the National Institute of Education (NIE). Thirty-three participants presented position papers addressing two major questions: (1) What are basic mathematical skills and learning? (2) What are the major problems related to children's acquisition of basic mathematical skills and learning, and what role should the National Institute of Education play in addressing these problems? These papers are presented in this volume. Conferees organized into small working groups during the conference. Conference participants included representatives from public school systems; university faculties of education, mathematics, and psychology; educational research and development organizations; textbook publishers; the National Science Foundation; and NIE. The papers range from broad philosophical discussions of the issues to specific detailing of objectives and problems. (SD)
