Modern Mathematics In Secondary Education, Sandra Lee Sawyer Jan 1968

Modern Mathematics In Secondary Education, Sandra Lee Sawyer

Honors Theses

Until recently, the mathematics curriculum in elementary and secondary schools had been relatively unchanged for a century or more. While both elementary and secondary school programs are undergoing special studies, the most extensive curriculum projects to date have been focused on the secondary school.

First, let us consider the purpose of modern math. There has been much criticism about changing from the traditional math to the modern math. As mathematician Allendoerfer explains: "More than anything else, the new math is a new approach to old ideas, a mixture of intuition, deduction, and application."


Mechanized Mathematics, Britton Wood Jan 1964

Mechanized Mathematics, Britton Wood

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

The widespread availability of information requires people to know a lot more than was necessary in the past to qualify as educated citizens. Population growth, however, has made it difficult for education systems to meet their students’ learning needs. This paper examines changes in education methods, focusing on technology-based learning, or “teaching machines”. The researcher evaluated "programed learning” by juxtaposing two 9th grade algebra classes—a 30 member experimental group and a 32 member control group. The experimental group received “programed learning” instruction while the control group was taught using traditional methods. A post-test was administered at the program ...

Is High School Chemistry A Preparation For College Chemistry, Mansfield Martin Jun 1932

Is High School Chemistry A Preparation For College Chemistry, Mansfield Martin

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

The subject of this study grew out of a desire to estimate the value of high school chemistry and its relation to college chemistry. The purpose is to bring about a better understanding of the necessity of a closer tie-up between different levels of our educational system. Life and growth are continuous processes, and, if education if life, we must make it a continuous experience. While limited because of incomplete records and changing classifications of our high schools, it is hoped that this study will lead to a further and more scientific study of related problems in this field.


Zoology In The High School Curriculum, Henry B. Ward Aug 1897

Zoology In The High School Curriculum, Henry B. Ward

Studies from the Zoological Laboratory: The University of Nebraska

A long time has elapsed since Bacon gave to the world the sound advice that “ we should accustom ourselves to things themselves.” Little by little this idea has gained ground, until now it is recognized as a general principle in every grade of educational work and in widely separated departments of study that contact with concrete objects is far more inspiring and thought-producing than the mere scanning of black marks on a white page. So far as natural science is concerned, the varied training which it affords has been abundantly discussed before this association and elsewhere. To be sure, its ...
