Training Program for Teachers of Technical Mathematics in Two-Year Curricula.
Queensborough Community Coll., Bayside, NY.
This handbook is designed to assist teachers of technical mathematics in developing practically-oriented curricula for their students. The underlying assumption is that, while technology students are not a breed apart, their needs and orientation are to the concrete, rather than the abstract. It describes the nature, scope, and content of curricula in Electrical Technology, Mechanical Technology, Design Drafting Technology, and Technical Physics, with particular reference to the mathematical skills which are important for the students, both in college and on the job. Sample mathematical problems, derivations, and theories to be stressed in each of these curricula are presented, as are additional materials from the physics and mathematics areas. A frame of reference is provided through discussions of the careers for which technology students are being trained. There is also a section devoted to the development of reading and study skills and to general classroom management. (Author/DC)
