Occupational Mathematics; Ratios and Fractions. Report No. 16-D. Final Report.
Rahmlow, Harold F.; And Others
This programed mathematics textbook is for student use in vocational education courses. It was developed as part of a programed series covering 21 mathematical competencies which were identified by university researchers through task analysis of several occupational clusters. The development of a sequential content structure was also based on these mathematics competencies. After completion of this program the student should be able to demonstrate (1) his recognition of fractions of the form a/b where a and b are letters or positive integers less than 100, (2) knowledge of the terms numerator and denominator, (3) how shaded areas of plane figures can be represented by fractions, (4) knowledge of the relationship between a ratio and a fraction, and (5) that competency has been attained by answering four out of five multiple choice test items covering each objective. The material is to be used by individual students under teacher supervision. Twenty-six other programed texts and an introductory volume are available as VT 006 882-VT 006 909, and VT 006 975. (EM)
