Pifer, James Wright
MetadataShow full item record
This paper evolved from my desire to learn more about new reforms in secondary school mathematics. Through conversations with Dr. Calloway, I decided that the twelfth grade offered the greatest number of possibilities. With the traditional high school curriculum being condensed, there is a necessity to fill one semester or the entire twelfth year with a course or courses previously taught at the college level. The first section of this paper is an examination of a number of solutions suggested by national organizations and commercial textbook authors. The second section is composed of specific programs in operation at various schools in the United States and a few foreign countries.
