An Examination of Existing Guidelines for Programs for the Preservice and Inservice Education of Teachers in Metric Education and the Modification of These and the Development of New Ones if Deemed Necessary. Final Report of Objective No. 3.
These guidelines for in-service and preservice teacher education related to the conversion to the metric system were developed from a survey of published materials, university faculty, and mathematics supervisors. The eleven guidelines fall into three major categories: (1) design of teacher training programs, (2) teacher training, and (3) evaluation of materials. Each guideline is stated in some detail, and a rationale for each is provided. Target populations for in-service and preservice training in the metric system are identified, and tables indicating the applicability of each guideline for these populations are provided. (SD)
