Abstract : Ability to use certain fundamental mathematical processes is considered necessary for acquiring the knowledge of electricity and electronics taught in the Basic Sonarman Course, C-560, given at the Fleet Anti-Submarine Warfare School, San Diego. Refresher training in mathematics is given to all new students after normal school hours during the first four weeks of Course C-560. If this refresher training could be programed for independent self-study, distinct advantages would accrue such as reducing the instructor load, making possible individual study immediately after the student arrives at the school, and permitting differential training for differing individual needs. This study was conducted to determine whether the development of programed materials for the refresher training would be feasible and whether these materials would be as effective as the conventional instruction. Three of the areas covered in the mathematics review were programed. (Author)
