Mathematics Curriculum Guide, Grades K-8, Revised 1986.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge. Div. of Academic Programs.
One of the most important provisions of Act 750 of the 1979 Louisiana Legislature is the mandated development and establishment of statewide curriculum standards for required subjects for the public elementary and secondary schools. The 1986 revision of the Louisiana standards for mathematics recognizes the need to move from minimum to on-grade-level expectations for all children. This curriculum guide has been organized to reflect the emphasis on problem solving. The first part, "Curriculum and Standards," lists the domains, standards, and skills for all grades. The second part, "Problem-Solving Process and Strategies," provides teaching materials for 13 strategies. The last part presents instructional activities for 10 domains: sets; numeration; whole number operations; fractions and operations; decimal numbers and operations; percent, ratio, and proportion; measurement; geometry; graphs, probability, and statistics; and pre-algebra. The appendices contain a list of suggested manipulatives and an index to curricula and standards. There are 24 references. (YP)
