Presented is a description of a mathematics program for kindergarten through grade six, as recommended by the State Education Department of New York. The curriculum for each grade in elementary school mathematics, in this publication, is organized into five major strands: (1) number and numeration; (2) operations with whole numbers; (3) operations with fractions; (4) probability and statistics; and (5) geometry and measurement. The guide states that the strands should be viewed as intricately related, and that teachers should use their own judgment concerning the order of presentation of the topics. The document gives many examples of problems and activities that can be used to help communicate the listed objectives to pupils. (MP)
