Math without Fear. A Concrete Approach to Mathematics.
This curriculum guide, developed by an adult basic education program for disadvantaged women, provides methods for teaching mathematical concepts and operations including whole numbers, fractions, decimals, and percents. The curriculum illustrates methods and activities that bridge the gap between numerals (the symbols of mathematical relationships) and the reality upon which they are based, by providing concrete examples using manipulative materials through which the learner experiences the concepts of mathematics first hand. The methods outlined in this curriculum also address the issue of mathematics anxiety by offering learners immediate success in the subject. The 22 activities in the guide include procedural instructions and follow-up activities; 10 references are listed. (KC)
