Talisayon, Vivien M. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1983
Presents a readability formula and compares it with existing formulas and procedures. The formula uses reader feedback (identifying unclear words, sentences, paragraphs, figures, tables, and equations of reading material) and is considered appropriate for science and mathematics curriculum materials.

Inder, W. R. D. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1982
Mathematics is a language -- a way of describing, recording in mathematical sentences, and interpreting the symbols used to denote relationships. It is also an activity involving a way of thinking and a means of using relationships to solve problems. Opportunities must be provided for these activities in mathematics teaching. (Author/JN)

Utsumi, Seiji – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1983
Comparisons of four videodisc systems are given, and then compared with videotapes. Education projects using videodiscs are noted, and problems of using videodiscs in education are noted. It is believed that videodiscs, especially when operated by a microcomputer, will open new aspects of computer-assisted instruction. (MNS)

Collis, Kevin F. – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 1981
Describes three procedures (with sample items) developed to measure conceptual growth in children: (1) a short answer type achievement paper test; (2) stimulus cards; and (3) card sorting task. Tests were designed to enable investigators to observe, record, and quantify student's thinking without disrupting or distorting it. (DS)
