Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu. Office of Instructional Services.
Presented is one of a series of resource guides designed to provide students with an improved mathematics program. This guide emphasizes hands-on experiences for secondary students through real-life situations focusing on measurement in the home. Students are provided with numerous opportunities to use both customary and metric units in applications to measurement in the kitchen and in connection with home furnishings, the cost of utilities, and general family finances. The bulk of this document is a collection of worksheets designed to help students through individual mathematics laboratory experiences. The intent is to provide teachers with materials and guidelines to structure a course that develops basic mathematical skills and concepts through application of "home laboratory" experiences. (MP)
