Developed for use in teaching a two-semester, one-unit course, this course guide is intended to aid the high school instructor in teaching mathematical problem-solving and computational skills to vocational education students. The state-adopted textbook for general mathematics III, "Applied General Mathematics" serves as the major resource material. The course guide contains a course outline for the nine units, master lists of competencies in vocational mathematics and performance objectives, and the teaching units or lessons, comprised of practical applications of the competencies. The units cover solving problems with a calculator; linear measurement; measurement--capacity, mass, temperature; introduction to basic algebra; ratio, proportion, and percent; graphs and tables; geometry; money and time; and measurement--area and volume. Each unit is composed of 2 to 16 competencies. For each competency, some or all of the following are provided: performance objective, sample item(s), notes, reference to text, evaluation, answers to evaluation, applications for the performance objective (problems to be solved), and answers to applications.
