Enterprise State Junior Coll., AL.; MacArthur State Technical Coll., Opp, AL.
This curriculum package on math for textile technicians has been developed by the Workforce 2000 Partnership, a network of industries and educational institutions provides training in communication, computation, and creative thinking to employees and supervisors in textile, apparel, and carpet industries at 15 plants in Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. The curriculum guide provides a quick view of all major curriculum components: job title for which the curriculum was developed; general instructional objective; overall time; and a chart which is used by reading across the columns to match the specific instructional objective with the estimated amount of time required, learning activities, resources required, and evaluation method. A closure activity reviews and assesses skills learned and may identify needs for further learning. The lesson plan explains the activities in detail. Handouts, transparencies, and pre- and posttest are provided. This module is designed to teach technicians how to use occupational specific math. Objectives include the following: perform computations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, including multiple operations using decimals and common or mixed fractions; perform computations involving finding percents; changing fractions and decimals to percents; and changing percents to fractions and decimals, including using multiple operations in word problems.
