Modular Self-Paced Graphics at the Community College.
Brillhart, Lia
A combined lecture-problem workbook course in math and graphics for students entering the engineering program at Triton Community College was designed to allow them to progress at their own rate without a need for faculty lecture. The workbook places equal emphasis on descriptive geometry and graphics with the major areas covered broken into approximately 50 modules, each containing a statement of the topic, theoretical notes, and the method of solution. The modular approach has several advantages: (1) it certifies that all students have covered the same material and have been exposed to the basics in the field; (2) it offers flexibility for schools whose entering populations exhibit a variety of preparations or abilities; (3) it allows a greater degree of freedom for individual teaching styles among part-time faculty; and (4) it offers built-in accountability for administrative concerns. Sample problems are included. (MER)
