Integrating Vocational Competencies and Math Skills. Industrial Education.

This document is designed to help teachers identify those math skills that students must master to complete the vocational competencies taught in industrial education classes. Included in the document are 10 program area/math skills matrices that were developed as a result of a research development project during which secondary-level Missouri industrial education teachers listed the math core competencies and key skills required for and/or currently taught in the state's industrial education programs. Matrices are provided for the following program areas: air conditioning, heating, and refrigeration; auto collision technology; automotive technology; building trades; drafting; electronics; graphic arts (offset lithography); health services assistant; machine technology; and welding. Each three-column matrix identifies the vocational competencies involved in the given program area, the math skills involved in the said vocational competencies, and an indication of whether the math skills will be new to students in the vocational classroom or whether they have already been covered by math courses in grades 2-10. An appendix based on the math skills identified in the 1990 "Core Competencies and Key Skills for Missouri Schools" contains additional information about the math skills listed in the second column of each matrix.
