Main Question or Discussion Point

I think it was multiple small manuals, 8 1/2" by 11" or maybe bit bigger, green cover with white lettering. The text inside alternated between paragraphs followed by questions and answers you were supposed to cover up with a punched card (unpunched). I had a set of these back in 1969. Not sure if these manual were called "primers". It was part of a Fortran class held on Saturdays for high school students at the IBM data center in downtown Los Angeles.

Wondering if anyone here remembers these.

The data center then:

Same building later as a Radio Shack building (not sure what it is now):
