"Learning To Do Math the Drafting Way." Field Test Copy.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Div. of Vocational Education.; California State Univ., Los Angeles. Dept. of Industrial Studies.
This booklet was developed for industrial arts students who demonstrate a need for additional instruction in mathematics, with the focus on the content needed for drafting. The eight topics included are: how to read a ruler, reading a one-fourth inch scale, multiplication of whole numbers, how to find square footage from an architectural floor plan, two plastic triangles used as drafting tools, centering a drafting isometric problem, a quick way to figure radius settings when using the drafting compass, and using fractions and decimals in the drafting class. Each topic lists teacher materials (concepts, instructions, and related activities) and provides several worksheets for students. To identify students who need additional help, a Basic Skills Checklist is provided for the teacher, and a Basic Skills Verification Form is included to enable the teacher to ask resource teachers and counselors to verify the identification and to provide instructional help. The materials may be used as instruction for the entire class, as a take-home, parent involvement assignment, or in a mathematics laboratory. (MNS)
