Summary

A pilot project has as its goals: to investigate the use of radio for elementary mathematics instruction in underdeveloped countries, to evaluate a prototype system, to develop a methodology for producing radio instructional materials, and to foster in the host country the ability to self-sustain the project. Toward these goals the report cites accomplishment to date: selection of a host country (Nicaragua--Department of Masaya), the steps involved in establishing and sustaining the project in its initial period, and formulation of a schedule for 1974 activities. In addition, the general research plans for the project are outlined. Several related researches in the United States, development of mental arithmetic tests, pilot testing lessons, experiment on digit writing time, and a textbook survey, are described as they relate to the Nicaraguan project.
