Mathematical Skills Required in ATE Programs

 

A working draft of resources and reports from an NSF-sponsored project intended to strengthen the role of mathematics in Advanced Technological Education (ATE) programs. Intended as a resource for ATE faculty and members of the mathematical community. Comments are welcome by e-mail to the project directors: Susan L. Forman or Lynn A. Steen.

 

ATE projects depend on both mathematical skills and problem-solving strategies. Although problem-solving strategies are relatively similar in different contexts, required skills differ significantly from one application to another. The following inventory illustrates the range of mathematical skills found in one or another ATE setting:
