Mathematical Programming for Delinquent Youth. Treatment of Delinquency Series, Chapter 4.
Sternberg, Les; Sedlak, Robert A.
The fourth part of a 10-part series, this report was compiled by the Educational Development Center at Wilkes College. The series deals with various aspects of the treatment of delinquents and is intended as a summary of research findings in each of the areas treated. Each report was prepared by a scholar-practitioner and is presented in a way that will be of value to professionals who deal both directly and indirectly with the treatment of delinquent youth. The report is, in fact, one manuscript of 627 pages; however, to make it more easily used, it is published in 10 separate parts. A detailed table of contents for the entire series is presented at the end of each part. This part deals with the teaching of mathematics to delinquent youth. It describes a number of important dimensions of an academic program for this population, and discusses the interface of content areas with these dimensions. Several specific math teaching programs are analyzed, and methods for setting up a math lab are set forth. (Author)
