Occupational Mathematics; Division of Fractions. Report No. 16-H. 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 cl"sters. The development of a sequential content structure was also based on these mathematics competencies. After completion of this program the student should know that "quotient" indicates division and be able to: (1) divide a fraction of the form a/b, where 0 is less than (a,b) and these are less than 100, by a positive integer less than 100, (2) divide a fraction of the form a/b by a fraction of the form c/d, where 0 is less than (a,b,c,d) and these are less than 100, (3) divide mixed numbers by mixed numbers of the form Xa/b, where 0 is less than (X,a,b) and these are less than 100, (4) divide literal fractions, and (5) divide any combination of the letters, fractions, integers, and mixed numbers listed above. 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)
