Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge. Div. of Academic Programs.
In response to the legislature's mandate to develop statewide curriculum standards for required subjects, this guide was developed by a statewide committee to present the content that should be taught in Mathematcs I. It was piloted by teachers in representative school systems and subsequently revised. Six goals for the course are listed, followed by a pacing chart suggesting the time to devote to each major topic in the course. The major topics are number concepts, real numbers, operations on whole numbers, extended number concepts, rational numbers, decimals, percent, relations and functions, measurement, geometry (informal), and operations on integers. The curriculum outline and performance objectives are then listed. In the following section, sample activities are presented, with content topic and objective noted for each. A brief list of books is given, but no answer key is provided. (MNS)
