Curriculum Guide for Basic Skills in Mathematics. Revised Edition.
Flax, Rosabel; And Others
This guide was developed to give Kansas mathematics teachers from grades K-12 minimal sequential experiences in implementing the skills, values, and concepts of the mathematics program, and to provide a basic outline for developing a local program. All teachers are encouraged to make a real effort to see that their activities fit into the overall educational picture of the students. The guidelines are developed to provide meaning and understanding of mathematics first for all students, and then practice. Problem solving is viewed to be the necessary focus of instruction in mathematics. Objectives for mathematics are detailed by grade from K-8, and in the senior high for General Mathematics, Pre-algebra, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, and Trigonometry. An appendix includes a directory of resource persons with details pertinent to their potential usefulness in various situations. (MP)
