Some Thoughts on Education and Mathematics.
Sawyer, W. W.
Gifted Education International, v1 n2 p65-69 1983
Rigid syllabuses and lock-step teaching of mathematics ignore real forces in the mind that promote development and learning, as well as fostering resentment in gifted children, particularly when drill continues after a skill is learned. Discovery of mathematics by the young, acceleration, and a low teacher-pupil ratio are better ways to promote mathematics learning. (Author/MC)
