Analysis of Fractions Curriculum for Constructivist College Remedial Mathematics Education.
Narode, Ronald B.
This document analyzes one chapter of a textbook for college remedial mathematics. This analysis is done by one of the textbook authors. The chapter under discussion deals with fractions. The text authors, writing from a constructivist perspective, attempted to write problems which not only developed specific conceptual and heuristic objectives for students, but also problems which engaged student curiosity and challenged students to reason and communicate. The problems were intended to help students develop an awareness that mathematics is necessary for understanding and coping in the world. The document is primarily devoted to the discussion of 11 types of fraction problems. The appendices are the table of contents of the text and solutions to sample problems. (PK)
