EXPERIMENTATION IN THE ADAPTATION OF THE OVERHEAD PROJECTOR UTILIZING 200 TRANSPARENCIES AND 800 OVERLAYS IN TEACHING ENGINEERING DESCRIPTIVE GEOMETRY CURRICULA.
CHANCE, CLAYTON W.
AN INVESTIGATION WAS MADE TO DETERMINE WHETHER AN OVERHEAD PROJECTOR AND TRANSPARENCY SET WOULD BE MORE EFFECTIVE AND ACCEPTABLE TO TEACHERS AND STUDENTS THAN TIME-PROVEN CHALKBOARD DRAWINGS IN THE TEACHING OF A DESCRIPTIVE GEOMETRY COURSE. IT WAS FOUND THAT (1) THE LECTURE-DEMONSTRATION PERIOD CAN BE REDUCED TO ALLOW A LONGER SUPERVISED LABORATORY PERIOD, (2) THE STUDENTS' KNOWLEDGE OF FUNDAMENTALS INVOLVED IN PROBLEM SOLUTIONS WAS INCREASED, (3) MORE TIME WAS AVAILABLE DURING THE LECTURE FOR STUDENT QUESTIONS, (4) THE FACULTY PREFERRED TRANSPARENCY DEMONSTRATIONS, AND (5) THERE WAS A NOTICEABLE IMPROVEMENT IN THE FINAL GRADES OF THE TWO TRANSPARENCY-TAUGHT CLASSES VERSUS THE TWO CHALKBOARD-TAUGHT CLASSES.
