Abstract This paper proposes a series of techniques to be used in teaching database design. Common ERD notations are discussed. The authors developed an ERD notation, adapted from the Unified Modeling Language, which facilitates student learning of the database design process. The paper presents a specific step by step process for representing the ERD components as tables and for normalizing the resulting set of tables.
