McKeough, William J. – School Science and Mathematics, 1970

Describes an instructional method in secondary school mathematics applicable to physics instruction, to develop conceptual understanding of motion word problems. Distance, rate, and time are defined, used as variables and considered with relative motion as a unifying concept. (JM)

Creswell, John L.; Wiscamb, Margaret – School Science and Mathematics, 1970

Presents techniques and materials for instruction at secondary school and upper elementary grades in mathematical concepts of number systems structure. Grouping is used as a simple algebraic system to illustrate structure. Closure, inverse, identity, commutative and associative properties are examines relative to manipulation of geometric figureS.…
