Berman, Barbara; Friederwitzer, Fredda J. – School Science and Mathematics, 1983

It is viewed understandable that many teachers consider fractions one of the most difficult mathematical topics to teach. School experiences need careful planning to include sequential activities which develop accurate concepts, and concepts are thought best developed by activities which move along the concrete-to-abstract continuum.

Harty, Harold; And Others – School Science and Mathematics, 1988

Investigates superintendents' needs in mathematics and science instruction. Used was a Likert-type questionnaire covering teacher quality, teacher supply, minority access, materials and equipment, and curriculum for non-academic students. A follow-up telephone survey examined the types of materials and equipment most needed. (YP)

Flener, Frederick – School Science and Mathematics, 1984

An overview of education in England is given first, as a prelude to discussing why it was difficult to identify practices that could easily transfer to mathematics teaching in the United States. What the author learned about mathematics instruction in primary schools is then discussed. (MNS)

McGinty, Robert L.; And Others – School Science and Mathematics, 1986

Textbook analyses for 1924, 1944, and 1984, suggest that the mathematics program regressed in expectations for students. The number of word problems in fifth-grade books has decreased and the amount of drill problems increased. (MNS)

Ball, Stanley – School Science and Mathematics, 1985

The learning potential of Logo programing language is discussed. Observations of students in kindergarten and first grade interacting with a sequence of Logo activities led to the development of nine benchmarks. (MNS)

Lester, Frank K., Jr. – School Science and Mathematics, 1982

Some important issues related to teaching problem solving in the elementary grades are addressed, with particular emphasis on the intermediate grades. Presents one point of view and some specific questions often raised by teachers who wish to incorporate problem solving into the mathematics program. (MP)
