Summary

Reported is a project involving the preparation of a selected sample of new written materials which would be easily readable by the population of preservice and inservice elementary teachers. Three characteristics of the materials were to be (1) readability with a minimum of additional instructional help, (2) a display of some of the connections between mathematics and the real world, (3) show the pedagogical objectives and uses of each mathematical ideas as the field axioms, sets, and logic. The final units produced were (1) An Introduction to Rational Numbers by James K. Bidwell (SE 007 751), (2) An Introduction to the Theory of Numbers for Elementary Teachers by Elton D. Beougher (SE 007 755), (3) Basic Number and Order Ideas by Robert G. Clason (SE 007 750), (4) Conceptual Models in the Teaching of Number and Operation by Robert G. Clason (SE 007 754), (5) Logical Thinking by Sister Mary de Lourdes McAloon (SE 007 749), (6) Uses of The Field Properties in Elementary School by Albert P. Shulte (SE 007 752), and (7) Uses of Mathematics in Other Subject Areas by Albert P. Shulte (SE 007 753). Because this was a pilot project for the development of materials, no statistical analyses or conclusions are reported. (RP)
