Farrell, Edward J.
This curriculum for mathematics is designed as a teachable curriculum directed toward workplace needs. It is intended to be workplace specific and to move the learner toward a full 12th-grade level attainment. The two modules in this curriculum are further divided into modules dealing with specific topics. The first module, Basic Mathematics, consists of these seven parts: whole numbers, decimals, fractions, percents, measurement, ratio, and graphs and charts. The second module, Algebra 1, Geometry 1, & Statistics, has these seven parts: introduction to algebra, introduction to geometry, further development of algebra, ratio and proportion, further development of geometry, statistics, and the mathematics of linear equations. Each module is broken down into concepts, which are explained with examples and applications. Sources of drill and practice exercises are provided for each concept. (YLB)
