Issues in the Teaching of Mathematics.
There are numerous issues in the teaching of mathematics that need to be clarified and meaningfully understood by teachers, supervisors, and administrators. This paper discusses some of these issues, such as the integrated versus the separate subjects curriculum, the level of application versus knowledge for its own sake, state mandated versus locally determined objectives, traditional versus portfolio approaches in appraising achievement, traditional materials of teaching versus multimedia procedures, and logical versus psychological sequence in mathematics. One problem, among others in teaching mathematics, is how to arrange the order of objectives, learning opportunities, and evaluation techniques. There are numerous variables inherent in teaching pupils such as learning styles and multiple intelligences. (Contains 11 references.) (ASK)
