Michigan State Board of Education, Lansing.
This document aims to assist teachers, curriculum specialists, and other educators in their endeavors to improve their K-12 mathematics education programs. This is a companion document to the "Michigan Essential Goals and Objectives for Mathematics Education." The document illustrates the integration of mathematical content with process skills. The six process skills are: conceptualization; mental arithmetic; estimation; computation; applications and problem solving; and calculators and computers. The major purpose of this interpretive document is to provide examples and specific information on the content strands, the mathematical processes, and specific objectives. Vocabulary, comments, and examples for each objective are presented at different grade levels, such as K-3, 4-6, or 7-9. The mathematical content strands are: (1) whole numbers and numeration; (2) fractions, decimals, ratio, and percent; (3) measurement; (4) geometry; (5) statistics and probability; (6) algebraic ideas; (7) problem solving and logical reasoning; and (8) calculators.
