Occupational Mathematics; Percentage. Report No. 16-P. 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) convert to a percentage from a fraction of the form a/b, where 0 is less than (a,b) and these are less than 1,000, (2) convert from a percent to a fraction, (3) convert from a decimal to a percentage, (4) convert from a percent to a decimal, and (5) solve percentage problems of the form A=% x Base for A, %, or Base given the other two factors. 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 006 822-VT 006 909, and VT 006 975. (EM)
