Abstract : Information presented to the learner in education and in training often consists of sets of terms which represent interrelated concepts. In organizing the presentation of these terms and concepts, the developer of a particular curriculum may or may not consiously employ a rationale. An object of this paper is to offer a technique which may be used for ordering the sequence of presentation of conceptual subject matter so as to explicate relationships. The lattice technique is also conceived to be more than a device for formally depicting conceptual relationships. It may serve as a vehicle for experimentation on the arrangement of instructional subject matter. The use of the lattice by the learner during his instruction may be valuable, too, as an orientational aid.
