How Much of the Content in Mathematics Textbooks Is New?
Flanders, James R.
Arithmetic Teacher, v35 n1 p18-23 Sep 1987
Mathematics textbooks for grades K-9 were examined to determine how much of content was new content rather than review of old content. New content tends to decrease from grade three through grade eight with lowest amount of new content in books for grades six, seven, and eight (below 40 percent for two series). Differences among series are identified. (RH)
