Occupational Mathematics; Subtraction of Fractions. Report No. 16-F. 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: (1) know that "difference" indicates the operation of subtraction, (2) order any set of fractions, (3) subtract a small fraction of the form a/b where 0 is less than (a,b) when these are less than 100 from a larger fraction with the same denominator, (4) subtract a small fraction of the form a/b, where 0 is less than (a,b) and these are less than 100, from a larger fraction of the same form with unlike denominators, (5) subtract two literal fractions with common denominators, (6) subtract two literal fractions with unlike denominators, and (7) subtract a small mixed number from a larger one of the form Xa/b where 0 is less than (X,a,b) when these are less than 100. 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)
