Integral Elements of an Effective Mathematics Program.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Div. of Curriculum Development.
This document is designed to assist schools in planning, coordinating, implementing, and evaluating mathematics programs. Eighteen elements are listed which are viewed to be basic to an effective program. The elements are grouped into evaluation areas that focus on administrative coordination, the mathematics teacher, instruction, the curriculum and instructional materials, staff development, physical facilities and equipment, and community involvement. The elements are listed with related questions and a rating scale that may be used to study existing programs. All elements are considered to be attainable, and attainment of all 18 is seen to indicate a successful mathematics program. Two sample forms, called the school-level mathematics target form and the school-level target monitoring form, are provided. These are designed to record and monitor progress towards identified targets by utilizing the integral elements and related questions that make up the bulk of this publication. (MP)
