A Report to the National Science Foundation: A "Summer Study" to Help Plan EDC's New Program in Mathematics. Project ONE.
Education Development Center, Inc., Newton, MA.
In 1973, the Education Development Center (EDC) received a grant for the production and support of 65 half-hour television programs. Aimed primarily at eight- to eleven-year-old minority children, the programs were to teach supplementary mathematical topics through real situations, drawing examples from science, technology, and the arts. Hands-on materials were to be used in conjunction with the television shows. This document is a description of a series of meetings referred to as the "Summer Study" that brought together a group to design, develop, and refine plans for EDC's new program in mathematics. The group included psychologists, educators, television producers, script writers, musicians, mathematicians, researchers, and experts in other fields. Components of the summer study described include: project background, summer study organization, internal advisory group, outreach meetings, testing of assumptions, and research and evaluation. (MK)
