This course has three sections, determined by OALCF level. Instructors wishing
to show progress can guide each learner to complete each level. This course is
modular and can be delivered/instructed in parts with only one section used,
based on learner need and level. What areas of this course a learner
completes is at the discretion of the instructor.
Part 1 (OALCF level 1) of this course contains lessons on counting and making
change, using a calculator, basic math operations, measuring time, and
writing sums of money in decimal form.
Part 2 (OALCF level 2) of this course contains lessons on rounding numbers,
calculating work hours and pay stubs, understanding fractions, using
percentages in the workplace, and calculating decimals.
Part 3 (OALCF level 3) of this course contains lessons on averages, ratios, and
using retail formulas.
This course design provides learners entering the workplace with the math
skills needed to work effectively but can also be useful to secondary school
students entering co-operative placements, or learners looking to improve
numeracy skills for independence.
