Wilson, Nancy; Goschen, Claire
This learning module, a continuation of the math I module, provides review and practice of the concepts explored in the earlier module at an intermediate level involving workplace problems. The following concepts are covered: instruction in performing basic computations, using general numerical concepts such as whole numbers, fractions, decimals, averages, ratios, proportions, percentages, and equivalents in practical situations. The problems are relevant to all aspects of the printing and manufacturing industry, with emphasis on measurement skills, converting fractions to decimals, reading a ruler, and figuring cost information that might be used in a customer service environment. The module includes units for six class sessions. Each unit includes the following materials: rationale, learning objectives, curriculum notes and references for the instructor, course outline, introduction, evaluations, information sheets, problems to solve, and transparency masters. Supplementary materials include a mathematics outline, a syllabus, pretest and posttest with answer keys, and handouts. (KC)
