Changing to the metric system by Donald L Chambers( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines educational aspects of the conversion to the metric system of measurement in the United States. Statements of positions on metrication and basic mathematical skills are given from various groups. Base units, symbols, prefixes, and style of the metric system are outlined. Guidelines for teaching metric concepts are given, including organization of behavioral objectives by grades and topics and student behavioral objectives. Resources for support of metric education, such as the MeasureMetric Instructional Television Series and Metric Week, are reviewed. A bibliography of printed resources on metric education is given.

Guidelines to mathematics, K-8 by Donald L Chambers( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document is a revised edition of the 1967 Guidelines to Mathematics, K-6, and is thought to reveal few changes in detail and no changes of substance. The guidelines are seen as firmly rooted in the successful curriculums of the past while encouraging changes appropriate to the needs of students who will be adults in the computer age. Major sections include: (1) Mathematics Instruction: A Point of View; (2) Key Mathematical Content Objectives and Related Instructional Objectives; (3) Problem Solving; (4) Adjusting Mathematics Programs to Student Abilities; (5) Evaluation and Testing; (6) Criteria for Program Development; (7) An Agenda for Action: Recommendations for School Mathematics of the 1980's (NCTM); (8) Position Paper on Basic Skills; and (9) Bibliography. The document lists instructional objectives separately for grades kindergarten through grade eight. Each grade has objectives listed under the following headings, where appropriate: Sets and Numbers; Numeration Systems; Order; Number Systems, Operations and Their Properties; Ratio and Proportion; Computation; Size and Shape; Sets of Points; Symmetry; Congruence; Similarity; Constructions; and Coordinate Systems and Graphs.

Report on the Conference on Competency Based Mathematics Education, Madison, Wisconsin, January 13, 1978 by Donald L Chambers( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This conference on competency based mathematics education was held in response to inquiries from mathematics teachers, curriculum directors, principals, and district administrators. Topics include: (1) What is competency based education; (2) The status of competency based education; (3) The process for developing a system of competency based education; (4) Lists of objectives and test items available for use in developing such a system; and (5) The position of various agencies with respect to competency based education. Papers that address these topics and descriptions of programs using competency based education are presented. (Mp)
A Comparison of the Mathematics Achievement of Males and Females. Bulletin No. 9194 by Russell H Allen( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Current research suggests that the difference in mathematics achievement between males and females in and beyond the junior high school grades is a direct consequence of the decision by many girls not to take advanced mathematics courses during high school. The first section of this paper indicates at least three factors influence this decision: (1) a lower feeling of competency among many females; (2) acceptance by many females that mathematics is a male activity; and (3) the feeling among many females that mathematics is not likely to be of much use in future career aspirations. Sections ii, iii, and iv compare the scores of males and females on an objective-referenced mathematics test and on a norm-referenced test. All of the scores reported are for fourth, eighth, and twelfth grades and all reflect the national pattern: that girls compare favorably with or higher than boys in the elementary grades, but show lower achievement levels in the upper grades. Section v offers some recommendations which might serve to alter this pattern of weaker mathematics preparation found among girls. These recommendations are addressed to teachers, counselors, administrators, and parents, and suggest specific ways of encouraging more girls to enroll in mathematics courses. (Author/MP)
A Guide to Curriculum Planning in Mathematics. Bulletin No. 6284 by Donald L Chambers( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide was written under the basic assumptions that the mathematics curriculum must continuously change and that mathematics is most effectively learned through a spiral approach. Further, it is assumed that the audience will be members of district mathematics curriculum committees. Instructional objectives have been organized to reveal the continuity of development of a strand from kindergarten through grade 12. The guide was developed to serve four purposes: (1) provide a model and resource to local committees; (2) suggest criteria for content selection and strategies for curriculum articulation, implementation, and evaluation; (3) provide a description of the k-12 mathematics program for pre-service teachers; and (4) serve as a basis for all mathematics-related activity at the Department of Public Instruction in Wisconsin. The guide is organized into 12 sections. Sections 2-8 cover goals and objectives of specific content areas organized into seven strands: (1) number/numeration; (2) measurement; (3) geometry; (4) statistics; (5) algebra; (6) discrete mathematics; and (7) problem solving. Objectives are grouped by grade level. Section 9 considers college preparatory programs. Section 10 describes the curriculum development process. Section 11 describes issues affecting curriculum selection and instruction. Section 12 lists resources. The appendices, which comprise one-third of the guide, provide three categories of materials: (1) position papers and future-oriented papers by such organizations as the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (nctm) and the National Science Board Commission on Precollege Education in Mathematics, Science, and Technology; (2) outlines of learning objectives in mathematics for college-bound students (by the College Board and nctm) and in Wisconsin for college-bound and non-college-bound students, as well as for Grades 3, 7, and 10; and (3) a federally-funded report, "Girls, Math, and Science," published by the Center for Adolescence, University of North Carolina.
