Leslie Beatty(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is part two of a twopart smsg mathematics text for elementary school students. One of the goals of the text is the development of mathematical ideas via appropriate experiences with things from the physical world and the immediate environment. The text materials provide an introduction to the study of mathematics in which growth is from the concrete to the abstract, from the specific to the general. The authors emphasize exploration and progressive refinement of ideas associated with both number and space. Chapter topics include: (1) addition and subtraction  shorter forms of computation; (2) length and area; (3) multiplication, quotients, and division; (4) rational numbers; and (5) division. (Mp)

Gloria F Leiderman(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report presents the data and statistical analyses obtained in a fouryear study (19661970) of elementary mathematics (ELMA) in grades K3. Oakland Public Schools and the San Francisco Unified School District were the two systems involved in this study. Treatment variables included socioeconomic level of the community (low or middle) and curriculum used for teaching mathematics (SMSG or the state adopted SRA text series). Details of the design of the investigation are reported along with descriptions of the sample, the measures used to assess achievement and the factor analyses performed on the data. The content of the two curricula are outlined in the appendices. Further interpretations of the statistics and data obtained are given in "ELMA Reports, No. 2" (SE 016 833). (JP)
