lTH TEACHERS:
Preparation Changes Sought

THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Graduate Students View*
Academic, Social Life

BY MICHAEL OLINICK

A committee on undergraduate
teacher training of the Mathe-
matical Association of America
has issued a preliminary report
recomnmending. w i d e sweeping
changes in the preparation of
math teachers from grade school
to college.
Rejecting the usual divisions in-
to elementary, junior high and
high school teaching, the report
urges that teachers be trained by
the subject they are required to
teach, not by the grade level at
which it is taught.
"The pace at which we are
teaching mathematics is chang-
ing," Prof. Philip S. Jones of the
mathematics department said.
"There have been shifts in con-
tent. Many high schools teach
calculus courses and algebra-di-
rected materials' are filtering

down to the junior high school,
and even elementary levels.
Grasp Sequence
"This means that the mathe-
matics teacher, no matter what
he isdteaching, must know what
it leads toward. He must have A
grasp of the sequence of mathe-
matics beyond his immediate in-
terest."
The preliminary report was is-
sued to aid the many state de-
partments of education which are
now examining their teacher cer-
tification policies for possible re-
vision, he said.
Sets Levels
The report structures five dif-
ferent course levels and subse-
quent requiremnents:
1) Roughly the equivalent of
kindergarten through sixth grade.
These teachers would have a min-

i

imum of high school algebra and
geometry, as well as college level
courses in the. structure of the
real number system and the basic
concepts of algebra and geometry.
2) Teachers of algebra and
geometry. They would, need a
minimum of three courses in ele-
mentary analysis and four other
courses, including algebra, geom-
etry, probability and introduction
to logic and set theory while un-
dergraduates.
3) Teachers of what is now call-
ed "high school math." College
preparation for them would mean
a major in mathematics and a
minor in "some field in which a
substantial amount of mathemat-
ics is used," such as the physical
and biological sciences.
Needs More Courses
4) Teachers of the elements of
calculus, linear algebra, and prob-
ability, qualified for advanced
programs in high schools, junior
colleges and two-yearrcollege
mathematics. They are urged to
have a master's degree, with at
least two-thirds of their courses
in math, after an undergraduate
program at least as strong as in
the previous level.
.Recommendations for the train-
ing of college teachers have not
yet been reported and may "beE
the most major and controversial '
Prof. Jones said. "The committee
is discussing the drastic change of
graduate program to one with less
emphasis on research, a different
kind of dissertation, and some-
what of a lack of specialization."
Manion To Give
Classics ecture
G. R. Manton of the Univer-
sity of Otago (New Zealand) will
speak on "The Seven Against
Thebes of Aeschylus" under the
auspices of the classical studi .s
department at 4:10 p.m. today
in Aud A.

By LONIE KIRALDI
What is the graduate student s
attitude toward the University?
"The main conflict lies in con-
tinuing one's education, cultural
interests and social contacts whichj
are blocked by vocational school,"
William Holland, '63L, said.
"It takes up all of one's time
to learn law in three short years,
and therefore, one cannot par-
ticipate to any great xtent in
other activities," he ad d
Law Students Confined
One might want to be a part
of the University, but since most
of the classes and living quarters
for a law student are within one
block, one tends to forget about
what is going on outside, Ben-
jamin Stofanski, 6'3L, said.
- Mary Ann Tinker, '64M, said
that only a small percentage of the
graduate students live in Univer-
sity residences, but that this is an
academic aid.
Dorms Too Busy
"There is too much going on

in the dorms," she said. "Social
life really depends on the in-
dividual. There are many activities
designed for graduate interest."
Jiu-Ewa Lo, Grad, from Taipei,
lives in Martha Cook. "Being in a
dorm makes one feel much more
a part of the University, especially
if one is a foreign student," she
said.
Maithili Raghaven, Grad, said
that "we are too serious and much
involved with our own work. On
the other hand, the under-
graduates are too juvenile and we
do not have anything in common
anymore. There doesn't seem to be
a happy medium."
Married Students
Married students seem to have
special problems by their own
acknowledgement. Nicholas Lyons,
Grad, revealed, "It is awkard to
be a student, a teacher, and a
father all at once. This combina-
tion does not leave one time to
get into the campus spirit. Our
social life is limited to our family."
