Abstract

Numerous factors enter into any teaching situation; such as, the number of periods devoted to instruction, methods of carrying on the class, training and personality of the instructor, motivation and ultimate objectives of the student, presence or absence of one or more "spark-plugs" in the class to keep daydreamers on the subject, previous training of the students, difficulty of the textbook and so on. The latter item alone is a matter of major consideration, particularly if it is not fitted to the group. Further, the proper use of textbooks and references, work-books, classnotes, models, charts, demonstrations, motion pictures and other teaching devices may be listed as of considerable importance. The present study is an attempt to evaluate one of these factors; namely, the work-book under the conditions which exist at Iowa State College.
