A new module being posted to the Dewey online training web site is a PowerPoint presentation entitled “Choice of Number Review.” The presentation is accompanied by a set of exercises. For further information about our overall online training effort, see our previous blog entry.
As a result of successfully completing this module, learners will be able to apply basic rules to choose correctly among multiple potential base numbers. This is also one of the objectives of the Technical Introduction to the DDC. This review module is intended to reinforce the learner's grasp of these key rules before the learner embarks on a more difficult module, such as Number Building: Add Tables. While the principles being taught in the review module are the same as in the relevant portion of the Technical Introduction to the DDC, the examples and exercise items are different.
This module presupposes some level of mastery of the principles taught in the Technical Introduction and Introduction to Table 1 modules.
