Effective Teaching of Mathematics. Bulletin No. 7447. Reprint.
Chambers, Donald L, Ed.
In an effort to present important research results in readable form for elementary and secondary teachers of mathematics, this publication reviews a model and ways of effectively teaching mathematics. The model of instruction proposed by Good and Grouws is based on teacher-centered whole class instruction. Perspectives and guidance are offered in the areas of: (1) making instructional improvement a priority (reviewing the characteristics of good teachers); (2) how the experts teach math (discussing the key aspects found in expert teaching); (3) effective mathematics teaching in the elementary grades (summarizing key instructional behaviors and teaching programs); (4) effective mathematics teaching in the junior high schools (describing instructional procedures adapted for use with junior high students); and (5) verbal problem solving (highlighting the importance of verbal problem solving). A listing of the literature on effective teaching of mathematics is also included. (ML)
