This three-part guide presents a brief program description along with lists of performance objectives and lists of test items for the Des Moines (Iowa) Public Schools Title I Elementary Mathematics Program. The program description provides background information on the Des Moines Public School District and describes the student selection/screening process, the instructional process, and the parent-school-communication process used in the program. The performance objectives section presents objectives for kindergarten through eighth grade for the following ten strands: (1) measurement; (2) logic and sets; (3) numeration; (4) addition-subtraction; (5) multiplication-division; (6) rational numbers; (7) geometry; (8) decimal fractions; (9) proportion and percent; and (10) probability.
