R&D Speaks in Junior High School Mathematics: A Research Seminar for Practitioners (Dallas, Texas, August 8-9, 1979).
Southwest Educational Development Lab., Austin, TX.
Presented is an account of a day-and-a-half seminar which was held for selected mathematics educators from six states. It was sponsored by the Regional Exchange (RX), a National Institute of Education (NIE) dissemination project headquartered at the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory (SEDL). The seminar had two important purposes: (1) to foster an exchange of information and resources between mathematics researchers and mathematics practitioners; and (2) to lend support to the mathematics preservice/inservice activities in the six-state region. Two researchers were on the program. One was a mathematics educator who discussed junior high school mathematics teaching in terms of diagnosis, remediation, mathematics anxiety, and problem solving. The other was a research scientist with the Classroom Organization for Effective Teaching (COET) who discussed classroom management research in the junior high school classroom. A synthesis of each of these discussions is given. Questions and answers which occurred during the discussions have been incorporated into the text and hand-outs given during the discussions are included following the texts. Also included are written questions which the participants presented to the researchers, and the answers and recommended resources with which the researchers responded. (Author/MK)
