This project represents an attempt to develop some materials to supplement the Addison-Wesley Mathematics Program for Grade 2. The commercial program, as it stands, is conceptually sound. Operationally, however, it in many cases did not satisfactorily meet the needs of the individual students of the classroom.

Therefore, the basic material was retained (i.e., student workbooks, teacher's manual, unit tests). Materials have been developed which allow some individualization in the presentation of the concepts, self-pacing by the student, testing devices, working conditions, manipulative materials, and follow-up worksheets. These terms are further explained in the pages that follow, as well as their relation to the Addison-Wesley program.

These materials will be used during the 1972-73 school term at Rose Hill Elementary School, Lake Washington School District, Kirkland, Washington. They are intended to be used solely in my room. Periodically throughout the year, and at the end of the year, the materials will be evaluated. It is reasonable to assume that revisions will be necessary, but only after they have been in operation and fairly evaluated over a period of time.
