This competency analysis profile contains eight lists of mathematics skills that have been identified by employers and verified by math-certified instructors as being core competencies for eight groups of occupational areas. Each list is organized into subsections dealing with the following: numbers and number relations, measurement, data analysis and probability, algebra, and geometry. The following are among the broad categories of occupations included in the eight occupational groups: business, marketing, and law enforcement; agriculture and horticulture; agricultural and auto mechanics; building trades; allied health occupations; home economics-related, food service, and hospitality occupations; commercial and graphic arts; and technical occupations and machine trades. Also included in this competency analysis profile are cross-reference charts illustrating the correlation between the identified competencies and the Ohio Model Competency-Based Mathematics Program. A copy of the Ohio Model Competency-Based Mathematics Program concludes the profile. (MN)
