Applied Mathematics--Machine Shop; A Teachers Guide.
The outline of mathematics skills provides for individualized instruction by allowing each student to complete performance tests which indicate the point at which his instruction should start. The course is divided into two parts; one covering operations with whole numbers, decimals, fractions, and percentage; the other dealing with ratio, proportion, square roots, fundamental geometry, and trigonometry with practical applications. The skills in part one are prerequisite to successful completion of part two which meets the performance requirements of the second class machinist classification. The outline contains lists of texts for both parts on which the skills and assignments are based and a pretest for proficiency credit for part one. The course is structured in units (13 in part one, 10 in part two) which are divided into lessons. For each lesson specific performance objectives with corresponding assignments from the texts are indicated. Quizzes for some lessons and tests for each unit (actual forms) are included. An evaluation form for each unit has space for lesson, quiz, and unit test grades and a percentage formula for using these three types of scores in tabulating a final grade. (MS)
