The NIE Conference on Basic Mathematical Skills and Learning (Euclid, Ohio, October 4-6, 1975). Volume II; Reports from the Working Groups.
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). Position papers presented by the 33 participants and status reports from 11 agencies involved in mathematics education were received and analyzed. On the basis of this analysis, four topics were identified as issues around which working groups would be formed for the remainder of the conference. These were: (1) classroom instruction and teacher education, (2) curriculum development and implementation, (3) goals for basic mathematical skills and learning, and (4) research priorities. Reports of the individual working groups are presented in this volume. These reports make specific recommendations to NIE: recommendations range from statements of general policy and procedural guidelines which the groups felt should be followed to specific projects for which funding should be available. The final paper in this volume is a summary of the conference with comments on 10 broad problems by the co-chairmen. (SD)
