Ohio Regional Conferences on Mathematics Education.
Suydam, Marilyn N.; And Others
Five regional conferences designed for elementary supervisors and elementary mathematics educators were held in Ohio. The purposes of the conferences were: (1) to provide direction on the effective use of the calculator in the elementary school classroom; (2) to re-emphasize the importance of problem solving as a major curricular outcome; (3) to explore the interaction of the two areas and their relationship to the current emphasis on the basics; and (4) to establish links between supervisors and mathematics educators in each region for continuing curriculum development and improving instructional practice. Contents of this report include: (1) announcement and application forms; (2) sample schedules of the conferences; (3) conference evaluation forms and data from the evaluation; and (4) resource packets including papers presented or discussed at the conferences, sample materials, and transparency masters.
