Survey Feedback from Secondary School Teachers that are Finishing their First Year Teaching from an Integrated Mathematics Curriculum.
Edgerton, Richard T.
This paper describes the adoption of an integrated mathematics curriculum for secondary school students. The decision to adopt this type of curriculum was based upon a one-year review of available curricula and involved many of the teachers that would be impacted, all secondary school mathematics department heads, and the district school board. As a way of determining the problems, issues, and indicators of success of the integrated mathematics adoption, the district surveyed the Integrated Mathematics I teachers near the end of the first year of the adoption. A majority of the teachers (83%) preferred to continue with the integrated program instead of returning to the traditional algebra, geometry, algebra/trigonometry sequence. The results and summary of that survey are included. Appended are a copy of the questionnaire and the numerical results. (KR)
