Guidelines to Mathematics, K-8.
Chambers, Donald L., Ed.
This document is a revised edition of the 1967 Guidelines to Mathematics, K-6, and is thought to reveal few changes in detail and no changes of substance. The guidelines are seen as firmly rooted in the successful curriculums of the past while encouraging changes appropriate to the needs of students who will be adults in the computer age. Major sections include: (1) Mathematics Instruction: A Point of View; (2) Key Mathematical Content Objectives and Related Instructional Objectives; (3) Problem Solving; (4) Adjusting Mathematics Programs to Student Abilities; (5) Evaluation and Testing; (6) Criteria for Program Development; (7) An Agenda for Action: Recommendations for School Mathematics of the 1980's (NCTM); (8) Position Paper on Basic Skills; and (9) Bibliography. The document lists instructional objectives separately for grades kindergarten through grade eight. Each grade has objectives listed under the following headings, where appropriate: Sets and Numbers; Numeration Systems; Order; Number Systems, Operations and Their Properties; Ratio and Proportion; Computation; Size and Shape; Sets of Points; Symmetry; Congruence; Similarity; Constructions; and Coordinate Systems and Graphs.
