Small Schools Mathematics Curriculum, 9-12: Scope Objectives, Activities, Resources, Monitoring Procedures.
Nelson, JoAnne, Ed.; And Others
The grade 9-12 mathematics curriculum learning objectives, activities, monitoring procedures and resources for small schools were developed during 1978-79 through the cooperative efforts of 10 Snohomish and Island County school districts, Educational Service District 189 and the Washington State Office of Public Instruction. The objectives were correlated to the goals for the Washington Common Schools and to the Small Schools Program goals for mathematics and designed to aid in complying with Washington's Student Learning Objectives (SLO) Law. A limited number of activities were written for some areas of secondary mathematics since most instructors use a text as the basis for instruction. Included in the scope of the secondary mathematics curriculum were: computational and measurement skills (whole numbers and rational numbers); practical applications of mathematics (graphs, personal finances, ratio, proportion, measurement formulas, percent and use of calculators); elementary and advanced algebra; geometry; advanced topics (trigonometry, analytic geometry, logic, probability and statistics, matrices and determinants, sequences and series, polynomial function, vector theory, history of mathematics, and calculus); computer topics (computer literacy, hardware, flowcharting, Basic and Fortran languages); and general study techniques.
