Math for Industry. Computation + Comprehension + Application.
Natchitoches Parish School Board, LA.
This document contains the efforts of a group of teachers to develop curricular materials designed to correlate the subject matter of mathematics with that of a shop course in power mechanics. It is not an adaptation of traditional courses in mathematics, but an attempt to integrate the subject matter of mathematics into the concepts utilized in power mechanics classes. Content is presented under the following chapter headings: Fractions, Decimals, Per Cent, Ratio and Proportion, Directed Numbers, Formulas, Metric System, Geometry, Powers and Roots, and Shop Business. These sections of study are designed to be as inclusive as possible. Included are all activities with which a student will be involved in a teaching situation, along with evaluation materials, worksheets, guides, and other materials that will be used. Each unit or topic includes a bibliography preceded by a list of equipment, films, and other supplies. (JP)
