MINNEMAST Recommendations for Science and Math in the Intermediate Grades.
Humphreys, Alan; Post, Thomas R.
This volume provides recommendations for teaching mathematics and science to intermediate students who have been taught using the MINNEMAST materials during the primary grades. After reviewing briefly the goals and content of the primary curriculum, the authors discuss the transitions from the integrated program to distinct curricula in mathematics and science. For each field, several criteria for the intermediate curriculum are defined and alternate models are offered. Text and supplementary materials are suggested for each of these models. Brief descriptions of the recommended texts are provided. (SD)
