Modern program in mathematics for the secondary schools

Bullock, Chester H.
Collier, Louis M.
Nature of Study: There exists today a tremendous amount of mathematical information. During the past two or three decades, the pace of acceleration has greatly increased because of a much greater demand for mathematicians, engineers and technicians. The acceleration has passed beyond the ability of the secondary school to dispense the information. Traditional mathematics taught by curriculum arrangements of the past has been found lacking. The public in general and educators in particular are now definitely in favor of a change to modern mathematics as needed in 20th century.
Use of the Study: The information contained in this report could be used as a lecture to interested groups or to point out to administrators the great need of change toward modern mathematical concepts, curricula and teacher-training programs.
