Integrating Computer Software into the Functional Mathematics Curriculum: A Diagnostic Approach.
Prince George's County Public Schools, Upper Marlboro, MD.
This curriculum guide was written to provide information on the skills covered in the Maryland Functional Math Test (MFMT) and to outline a process which will allow teachers to fully integrate computer software into their instruction. The materials produced in this directory are designed to assist mild to moderately handicapped students who will take the MFMT, but may also be helpful to regular education students who are experiencing difficulty with the test. The first section, "Domain Directory," lists 30 objectives divided into seven domains on the MFMT. The content scope, question format, teaching strategy, vocabulary, common errors, and task analysis are provided for each of the objectives. The second section, "Assessment Materials," contains tests, answer keys, and skill sheets. The skill sheets are organized by domains, corresponding objectives, and skills. The last section, "Software Materials," provides the software matrices relating specific skills to software programs and a summary reviewing the programs. Appendices include: (1) "MFMT Vocabulary List"; (2) "Student Progress Sheet"; (3) "Computer Software"; (4) "Suggested Assessment Modifications"; (5) "Guidelines for Parents"; (6) "Additional Resources and Supplementary Materials"; and (7) "MFMT List of Domains, Objectives, and Skills."
