Math Basic Skills Module for Disadvantaged Electronic Students. Final Report.
A project was undertaken to develop a remedial academic curriculum and materials that would help disadvantaged students gain the basic mathematics skills necessary to succeed in an electronics program. Major activities of the project included development of a bibliography of currently available math resource books with materials appropriate for use with disadvantaged students, a school staff evaluation of the current electronics program with regard to students' math needs, evaluation of the remedial program currently in place for electronics students, and development of a student handbook that includes a step-by-step process for solving electronics-related algebra problems. Appendixes (the major portion of the report) include a discussion of the scope and sequence of electronics-related math concepts and processes; vocabulary, metric relationships, and mathematical formulas for electronic-related math; guidelines for using a three-prong model to plan instruction of electronics-related math; and a bibliography.
