Mathematics: Promising and Exemplary Programs and Materials in Elementary and Secondary Schools. [Mathematics Education Information Report.]
Mizer, Robert; And Others
This document contains 29 programs and/or material listings that were nominated by at least three persons and for which there was evidence of the quality of the program or materials. Reviewers looked for positive evaluation data on the impact of the materials on students, or other information that assessed the quality of the program or materials, or both. This resulted in a selected listing of programs and materials. Print and/or nonprint materials for students' use also had to be available. Programs and materials are listed in three sections: Elementary-Secondary (K-12), Elementary (K-9), Middle, High School, and College. Program titles include: (1) "Add-Ventures for Girls": "Building Math Confidence"; (2) "EQUALS"; (3) "Family Math"; (4) "Florida Middle Grades Mathematics Instructional Model"; (5) "Great Exploration in Math and Science (GEMS)"; (6) "Activities to Integrate Mathematics and Science (AIMS)"; (7) "Figure Out"; (8) "Integrating Science, Math, and Technology (K-6)"; (9) "It Figures"; (10) "Instructional System in Mathematics (ISM)"; (11) "Jostens Learning Mathematics Curriculum"; (12) "LINK: A Middle School Math/Science Program for Excellence"; (13) "Math Their Way"; (14) "Math Works"; (15) "Project SEED"; (16) "Solve It"; (17) "TERC Used Numbers Project: Collecting and Analyzing Real Data"; (18) "Think About"; (19) "The Algebra Project"; (20) "Applied Mathematics"; (21) "Contemporary Precalculus through Applications"; (22) "Early Placement Evaluation in Mathematics (EPEM)"; (23) "Fifth-Year Math Program"; (24) "Math A--Fresno Unified School District"; (25) "Practical Mathematics I and II"; (26) "Teaching Remedial Mathematics to Students with Learning Disabilities"; and (27) "University of Chicago School Mathematics Project." Each section includes the title, source(s), audience, description, production date, evaluation and/or comments, materials available, and the address of a contact person. Four resource organizations and 11 references are listed. (KR)
