Explorations into Ways of Improving the Elementary Mathematics Learning Experience. Final Report.
Bell, Max S.
Details about an investigation into the nature of the mathematics curriculum at the elementary level and suggestions about ways to improve existing programs are the focus of this material. It is noted that there appeared to be a great gulf between the type of instruction typically provided and the type viewed as the best possible to provide, with much that was available not used by most teachers. It is felt that ways were found in which teachers and others could work together in developing activities and materials, and that better diagnostic tools were found as well. Further, ways that modest resources could be expended to effect noticeable improvements seemed to have been found. This document is presented with the intent of sharing experiences with others who might be interested in the elementary school mathematics experience. The bulk of the material consists of appendices which individually detail aspects of the exploration. (MP)
