Problem solving ... a basic mathematics goal : becoming a better problem solver by Steven Meiring( Book )

10 editions published between 1980 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This introductory book of a two-part publication, designed as an in-service tool for teachers of grades K-9, is based on the postulate that a teacher should become a better problem solver in order to teach problem solving more effectively to students. This booklet provides an overview of problem solving as a process used daily by all individuals and as a curriculum goal important to all disciplines. A substantial portion of the booklet is devoted to introducing strategies, methods useful in getting started on problems, and successfully solving them. Though the booklet uses mathematical problems as the medium for problem solving discussions and activities, the techniques have application to virtually any problem area. The booklet is intended for interactive use, it may be studied individually or be used by groups of teachers. It is planned in sections which are preceded by objectives in that section. The major portion uses a strategies approach to problem solving. Sections are organized by clusters of related problem solving strategies. Each strategy of a cluster is discussed and illustrated in the solution of a problem. (Author/MK)
Problem solving ... a basic mathematics goal : a resource for problem solving by Steven Meiring( Book )

10 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This second booklet of a two-part publication, designed as an in-service tool for teachers of grades k-9, concerns the teaching and curriculum aspects of problem solving. It is a digest of selected topics integral to successful problem-solving instruction. The resource is organized into independent units for individual reference or group in-service use. These units can be employed in a variety of ways. Self-contained topics may be selected as needed by teachers engaging in problem-solving instruction with their classes. Individual units may serve as the topic for in-service meetings conducted by supervisory staff. Particular units can be selected for periodic sustained study throughout the school year as a comprehensive in-service program or course on problem-solving teaching. The individual unit titles are: Introduction to Teaching Problem Solving; Research and Psychological Summaries; Looking Back Strategies; Teaching Considerations; Choosing Different Teaching Modes; Story Problems and Number Sentences; Getting Started; Primary Instruction; Intermediate and Junior High Instruction; Creating a Problem Solving Environment; Organizing the Curriculum; and Calculators in Problem Solving.

Milestones 2000 Reform Efforts in Mathematics and Science Teacher Education Programs at SUSTAIN Collaboratives in Ohio by Sigrid Wagner( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The profiles in this report present a snapshot of recent reform efforts in mathematics and science teacher education programs at institutions participating in Project SUSTAIN (Schools and Universities Statewide Teaching Approaches to Inquiry) collaboratives. Data were collected during the year 2000, and respondents were asked to describe developments over the past 3-5 years. Some of the initiatives were supported by SUSTAIN funding, and some were supported by other state, federal, and/or private funding. Because respondents could provide only information accessible to them, this report necessarily presents a conservative picture of the wide range of efforts underway throughout the state of Ohio to improve the preparation of mathematics and science teachers for the 21st century.

A Core Curriculum: Making Mathematics Count for Everyone. Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics Addenda Series, Grades 9-12 by Steven P Meiring( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The 1989 document, "Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics," provides a vision and a framework for revising and strengthening the k-12 mathematics curriculum in North American schools and for evaluating both the mathematics curriculum and students' progress. When completed, it is expected that the Addenda Series will consist of 22 supporting books designed to interpret and illustrate how the vision could be translated into classroom practices. Targeted at mathematics instruction in grades k-6, 5-8, and 9-12, the themes of problem solving, reasoning, communication, and connections are woven throughout the materials, as is the view of assessment as a means of guiding instruction. This book, "a Core Curriculum," is intended to provide instructional ideas and materials that will support implementation of a core curriculum in grades 9-12. The preface identifies issues that must be addressed in transition to a core curriculum as it reshapes mathematical content, pedagogy, and student assessment. Five chapters present: (1) a discussion of the changes in the nature of mathematics instruction; (2) matrices as an example of a mathematical topic now introduced in a core curriculum previously reserved for college bound students; (3) a crossover curriculum model consisting of two parallel course sequences that follow the same syllabus, including sample lessons reflecting four levels of depth appropriate for the two sequences; (4) enrichment and differentiated curriculum models for implementation of a core curriculum, including sample lessons from selected topics representative of these models; and (5) a plan for changing to a core curriculum, presenting six phases for implementation: awareness, commitment, planning, development, implementation, and evaluation. Appendices I and ii present model syllabi for a crossover curriculum and a differentiated curriculum. (Seventy-eight references and an annotated bibliography of core resources are provided.) (Mdh)
