Three Mathematics Projects of the Dienes Type.
Dienes, Zoltan P.; And Others
This book-length manuscript discusses some of the developments in mathematics, psychology and educational theory which have influenced new mathematics curricula. The projects are discussed in detail: (1) the OPI Mathematics Project begun in Budapest, Hungary; (2) the Sherbrooke Project in Quebec, Canada; and (3) the New York Project in New York City. Discussions of each project include brief historical comments, descriptions of the learning environments and vignettes of classroom discourse. Classroom objectives and procedures are related to the theories of Dienes, Piaget, and others. A chapter on evaluation discusses the need to evaluate curriculum projects and the difficulties of making certain types of assessments. The evaluation of the three projects is discussed. Future trends in mathematics education are predicted. Appendices provide a listing of some current projects on the teaching of modern mathematics and descriptions of materials used in the three projects. (SD)
