Summary and Evaluation Reports for the Junior High School Mathematics Consortium.
Ridout, R. L.; Mackenzie, R. D.
A consortium of twenty Canadian school districts was formed for the purpose of developing curricular materials for junior high school mathematics. The materials were designed to supplement standard textbooks which were considered insufficient for meeting the curriculum needs of students or teachers. Teacher-support materials were developed to accompany learning packages. Other program components developed included a management guide with an audiovisual reference section, a cross-indexed teacher resource book, providing objectives, activities and reference materials, and a bank of test items and normed tests. This volume describes the evaluation of the project. The principal means of evaluation was a survey of teachers participating in the pilot implementation. Data were collected on teacher background and situation as well as teacher assessment of the appropriateness of project objectives and activities for gifted, average, and low ability students. Data summaries indicated that the objectives were mathematically appropriate and the support materials suitable. An appendix lists the objectives for each grade level. (SD)
