A System of Instruction for Career Mathematics.
McHale, Thomas J.; Witzke, Paul T.
A system of instruction for technical mathematics which utilizes programmed materials, continual diagnostic assessment, and tutoring is described. The system was developed at the Milwaukee Area Technical College. The first section of this paper states the philosophy of the project, lists the programmed texts used, enumerates special features of the project, and describes the use of the system of instruction. The second section analyzes the system of instruction, giving details on how the system works, characteristics of students enrolled in the courses, course content, student evaluation, teacher role, and typical results of the program. Section three discusses the use of the system in secondary schools, including development of a two-year technical mathematics sequence for grades 11 and 12. The final section looks into future directions for the program. (DT)
