Abstract : A personalized system of instruction combining the principle of auto-tutorial instruction with modified self-pacing was applied to a course in the fundamentals of gas dynamics taught to thirteen students in the Department of Aeronautics at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, during the Spring quarter of 1972. The course results are summarized and the instructional materials developed for the course are included as appendices. While some degradation was apparent due to modifications made to the method, the results tended to affirm the substantial value of this instructional method and its superiority to the conventional lecture method.
