Occupational Mathematics; Representing Numbers by Letters. Report No. 16-B. 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 know that a letter can represent a number and that algebraic and arithmetic rules of operations apply to letters and numbers. He should be able to make correct numeric substitutions for general literal expressions and construct general formulas that represent simple relationships. 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)
