Learning Laboratories for Unemployed, Out-of-School Youth--Computation Skills (With Extensive Consumer Applications).
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Continuing Education Curriculum Development.
Prepared by secondary teachers from ideas suggested by an advisory committee of teachers, this compilation of learning activities is designed for use by mathematics instructors to supplement the curriculum resource handbook, "Learning Laboratories for Unemployed, Out-of-School Youth" (ED 047 273). The 34 activities, which are intended to orient the disadvantaged student to the world of work, emphasize such topics as basic mathematical combinations, multiplication, division, budgeting, banking terms, using a checking account, and credit. Each activity contains these components: (1) reference to the computation skills section of the curriculum resource handbook, (2) objective, (3) teaching procedure, (4) evaluation suggestions, and (5) student worksheets which may be duplicated and/or used for transparencies. An introductory section provides further suggestions to the teacher, including the recommendation that learning activities be organized in short, achievable units which can be gradually increased when the students' attention span, interest, and work habits improve. A related publication is available as VT 015 446 in this issue. (SB)
