Summary

A program to facilitate instruction for mathematically and scientifically gifted junior high students was described. Compared were nine educational alternatives for the gifted such as homogeneous grouping and early admission to college in terms of educational goals such as allowing for individual differences. Thirty-five scorers in a science fair competition were evaluated individually and detailed analyses of seven of the students' test scores and backgrounds were given. It was recommended that the students take college courses, or enter college early. It was reported that family background of the students usually involved bright parents though not all parents were college educated or in professional occupations. No obvious differences in college class participation between college students and the junior high students were found, and no grade of less than B was reportedly received by a student taking a college course. Mathematical knowledge appeared to derive from independent study or from working math puzzles. Briefly noted was a Saturday class in algebra, geometry, and trigonometry for a group of 22 mathematically gifted sixth graders. To stimulate the highly talented, schools were encouraged to identify advanced students, provide additional testing and counseling, and allow flexible scheduling and program planning. (DB)
