The learning experiences in the teacher's guide help students at the secondary level to develop and reinforce mathematical skills and to become familiar with a wide range of occupations. Each student is encouraged to assess personal attributes, including competencies in mathematics, to establish tentative occupational goals, and to set some guidelines for high school curriculum planning. The topics covered include: occupational information; personal attributes affecting occupational choice; whole numbers; fractions; ratios and percents; perimeter, area, and volume determination; and planning a tentative course of study. Each set of learning experiences contains a student objective, set overview, resource list, teacher-preparation tasks, learning activities, and suggestions for evaluation-summary activities. Activity-coordinated resource materials and worksheets are included. (Author/NJ)
