The career activities guide in mathematics, part of an Idaho State Department of Vocational Education career exploration series for grades 7, 8, and 9, is designed as supplementary material to enrich the regular curriculum. Any one activity in the guide might be used without involving any other activities. The cross-referenced index indicates grades, subject, career cluster, occupation, and, in most instances, subject concept. Performance objectives, activity situation and steps (mainly situational mathematical problems), materials, and special recommendations are outlined for the various job titles. Career clusters included are: home economics and consumer; industrial arts; arts, crafts, and humanities; business occupations; communications and media; hospitality and recreation; environmental control; personal service; manufacturing; transportation; health occupations; public service; agriculture and natural resources; marine science; marketing and distribution; construction; and miscellaneous activities. Subject concepts involve various aspects of science such as fractions, ratios, decimals, equivalent values, ruler measurements, proportions, metric system, percentages, chart reading, scientific notation, exponents, geometry, cost formulas, graph relations, and weights and heights.
