Summary

This number and operation handbook is intended to help emphasize the sequential nature of mathematics and focus attention on the need for a well-planned program to provide for continuity in the development of concepts in mathematics. Emphasis is on new approaches in teaching of standard topics to gain understanding. Different systems of numeration are studied, and the development and use of terminology and symbolism is stressed. Reported on are--(1) number and numerals - an introduction, (2) systems of numeration, (3) sets and sentences, (4) operations of addition and multiplication, (5) operation of subtraction, (6) operation of division, (7) our number system - an overview, and (8) other interesting facts about numbers. Each of the above units is organized as follows--(1) subject matter and explanatory material, (2) references for teachers, and (3) activities. The activities and teaching aids described in the latter section are intended to be used in the classroom (1) to develop concepts, (2) to provide enrichment and project materials, (3) to provide drill, and (4) to aid in introducing old topics in new ways.
