Development and Evaluation of an Experimental Curriculum for the New Quincy (Mass.) Vocational-Technical School; The Mathematics Curriculum. Tenth Quarterly Technical Report.
Butler, F. Coit, And Others
Technical activity from April 1 through June 30, 1968 involving the problem of developing the mathematics curriculum learning units are covered. The principal goal of the entire Project is to demonstrate increased effectiveness of vocational instruction whose content is derived from an analysis of desired behavior following graduation. During these activities three purposes were assumed for the learning of mathematics: mastery of technical skills, abstract reasoning and insight development, and learning skill development. The curriculum also was based on the use of specific behavioral objectives and individualized instructional techniques. Major steps in the curriculum development phase included: (1) listing of content topics, (2) development of semester objectives, (3) sequencing of content units, (4) preparation of unit syllabuses, (5) selection of available mathematics units, and (6) development of unavailable units. Materials for grades 10, 11, and 12 contained 92 units. The appendix includes samples of the materials and sources of the content. Other related documents are ED 024 749-024 754 and ED 024 767, and VT 008 451. (EM)
