The Oregon Vo-Tech Math Project. Final Report.
Linn-Benton Community Coll., Albany, OR.
Covering the time period of January 1974 to June 1975, the report describes the activities of an ongoing project to provide verbal problem sets for occupational math courses offered in Oregon community colleges and secondary schools. The problems were selected to provide the math skills necessary for job entry and performance in several vocational-technical occupations. An individualized format permits students to work problems in various career areas and alleviates material duplication by individual instructors. An evaluation of a small subset of problem sets was carried out in 12 model secondary schools and seven community colleges. In addition to compiling, printing, and disseminating the problem sets, the project also developed a proceedings booklet illustrating some of the uses of the problem sets. The five-page booklet is appended to the report along with a 20-page report of a subproject that consisted of three State conferences for vo-tech instructors. Other project-related materials are included. (NJ)
