Summary

Earth Algebra is an entry level college algebra course that incorporates the spirit of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics at the college level. The context of the course places mathematics at the center of one of the major current concerns of the world. Through mathematical analysis of real data, students gain new perspectives on mathematics as a tool. The course incorporates group work, written reports, simplistic mathematical models, and the use of technology. An executive summary involving a project overview, statement of purpose, background and origins, project description, evaluation/project results, and conclusions is included. Appended is a final evaluation report, "Earth Algebra Project: A Final Evaluation Report" (Pamela J. Drummond). Also appended are the evaluation instruments. (Author/ASK)
