This curriculum guide, one of 15 volumes written for field test use with educationally disadvantaged industrial education students needing additional instruction in the basic skill areas, deals with helping students develop basic mathematics skills while studying electronics. Addressed in the individual units of the guide are the following topics: reading a ruler, measuring and monitoring energy consumption, using the correct meter scale, finding voltage drops in a series circuit, converting electrical units, using mathematical formulas, and using scientific notation. Each unit contains some or all of the following: a discussion of the major concepts of the technique being covered, instructions to the teacher concerning the use of the given technique, suggested related activities, student instructions, a student assignment, supplemental activities, and one or more worksheets. A basic skills checklist and a basic skills verification form are also provided to assist teachers in identifying those students who require additional help with basic skills. (MN)
