Do you know anyone or any institution interested in accepting a donation of a relatively complete set of SMSG Materials?
I post offering to donate a small collection of School Mathematics Study Group materials which my wife inherited from her father, James C. McCaig. Jim's second career was as a 7/8th Grade Math Teacher in the Cupertino Union School District in Northern California. During his tenure he participated as a co-author of a “Special Edition” of the SMSG Secondary School Mathematics curriculum developed “…explicitly for low-acheiving mathematics students at the 7th and 8th grade levels”. This edition was sponsored by Stanford University and copyrighted in 1970 though not formally published for distribution to schools.
Our collection includes the the complete Special Edition including both Student Text Books and Teacher’s Commentaries for all 18 Chapters of the Special Edition.
In addition to the Special Edition the collection includes all or part of:
1959 - 61 Junior High School Curricula Texts and matching Teacher’s commentaries
1962 - 64 Secondary Curriculum Texts and Teacher’s Commentaries for Algebra, Matrix Algebra, and Geometry
1965 Revision to Secondary Mathematics Curriculum
1970 Revision to Secondary Mathematics Curriculum
1964 - 70 Total of 36 "Supplementary and Enrichment” or “Reprint” Booklets to extend the Secondary Curriculum
1961 - 69 Total of 14 Reports and Studies on development of Mathematics Curriculums
The complete collection fits in (2) 1.5 cu.ft. book boxes. We can provide more detail in a spreadsheet for interested parties that reply to this post.
If you are interested or know someone who is please reply to this post.
