This guide covers the second part of a bilingual, sequential mathematics course. The course integrates culturally relevant situations and illustrations with mathematics to reinforce the student's self-concept and encourage cultural pride. This program may be used as a self-contained continuum, as a supplement to another course of study, for individualized instruction, or in the large-group, traditional classroom. These materials are written in English and Spanish for grades 6-8, but may be used for other grade levels. The guide includes suggestions on grouping, presentations, goal setting, scheduling, a testing center, a mathematics laboratory, assignment of materials, and grading. Also included are an overview, behavioral objectives, a section which explains some mathematical procedures taught in Hispanic countries, and duplication masters and transparency masters. The mathematical topics covered are: multiplication and division of fractions, geometry, measurement, and addition and subtraction of fractions. (Author/MK)
