College Success in Mathematics. Teacher's Manual.
Schurle, Arlo W.
The College Success in Mathematics Project began in 1996 with the production of a framework for student success in university-level mathematics courses at the University of Guam. The project continued with a one-week workshop followed by the preparation of "Preparing for Mathematics" at the University of Guam (UOG), which outlined specific topics and described methods for testing the ability of students to succeed in the placement examinations for mathematics at UOG. In July 1999, a Curriculum Alignment and Teacher Training Workshop was held that made several recommendations at the administrative level, developed a list of topics to be emphasized in high school mathematics courses, and produced an outline of teaching methodologies to be used to enhance students' learning of mathematics. Building on the 1999 workshop recommendations, a Teacher Training Workshop was held, the first part of which was devoted to the discussion of Preparing for Mathematics at the University of Guam. The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Standards were introduced and discussed, particularly as they apply to the Federated States of Micronesia situation, so a summary of relevant parts of the NCTM Standards have also been included. This manual contains suggestions, teaching tips, and ideas for making these changes in mathematics classrooms. (ASK)
