Daly, Judith; And Others
This computer-assisted curriculum is intended to be used to enhance a vocational mathematics/applied mathematics course. A total of 32 packets were produced to increase the basic mathematics skills of students in the following vocational programs: automotive trades, beauty culture, building trades, climate control, electrical trades, medical/dental technology, and recreational vehicles. Designed to be used one day each week, the curriculum requires each student to be at a computer. Students complete a diagnostic skills inventory, and then are assigned to the appropriate unit. Topics include: computation with decimals, rounding numbers, fractions, percents, metric measurement, perimeter, area, volume, equations, formulas, ratio and proportion, graphing, and computer programming. Each unit contains the program printout for tutorials as well as other lesson materials, such as problems to be worked. The appendix presents the Trouble Shooting Manual to assist educators in implementing the curriculum. Both computer programming and instructional notes are included. (MNS)
