CSMP Mathematics for the Upper Primary Grades, Part III, Teacher's Guide: General Introduction, The World of Numbers, The Languages of Strings and Arrows, Geometry and Measurement, Workbooks. Final Experimental Version.
Heidema, Clare; And Others
This two-volume teacher's guide is to be used with a first-semester, third-grade mathematics program. The program is in large part the outgrowth of involvement with children and was influenced by information gathered in an extended pilot project conducted nationwide during 1975-79. The manner of presentation and the pedagogical ideas and tools are based on the works of Georges and Frederique Papy. They are recognized as having introduced colored arrow drawings ("papygrams") and models of our numeration system (the Papy "minicomputer"). This contains five sections: (1) General Introduction; (2) World of Whole Numbers; (3) Languages of Strings and Arrows; (4) Geometry and Measurement; and (5) Workbooks. Each section has its own table of contents. A series of lesson plans include capsule lesson summaries, lists of materials needed for both teacher and student, and lesson descriptions which suggest possible classroom dialogue and indicate the use of worksheets and manipulative materials.
