Summary

This report contains both a summary of research and an annotated list of research on the teaching of mathematics to disadvantaged pupils. Particular implications from the research summary are presented and include: (1) the disadvantaged profit from special attention, either from the teacher, the content of the program, the instructional materials, or the organization for instruction, (2) the mathematical characteristics which distinguish disadvantaged from advantaged pupils appear to exist in degree rather than kind, (3) social relevance appears to be more crucial to consider in the case of disadvantaged students, (4) active physical involvement with manipulative materials may be even more important for the disadvantaged than for the advantaged, (5) there is as much need for individualized instruction for disadvantaged students as for other groups of students. The list of references is divided in two major areas: educationally disadvantaged and academically disadvantaged. The latter section is sub-divided into four categories low achievers, remediation, slow learners, and mentally retarded. Citations are listed in alphabetical order by author and indicate sources, availability, and major ideas of the document. (JG)
