Mathematics for the Majority; A System of Instruction for Teaching Technical Mathematics.
McHale, Thomas J., And Others
The critical need for greater numbers of trained technicians provided the general impetus for developing this approach to teaching the math skills which are needed for basic science and technology. This instructional system, which has been developed over a 4-year period, focuses on the average and below average students who enroll in industrial technology as opposed to engineering technology programs. It incorporates a learning center with separate treatment for fast, regular and slow learners, programed instruction, and teacher aides. Although it was developed primarily for teaching mathematics in a technical institute, the system has been used in other institute courses and in three other institutes, two high schools, and one junior high school. The system has implications for individualized instruction both for mathematics education and for education in general. (CH)
