Car Costs. Six Units of Maths around the Theme of Car Ownership.
This curriculum material is designed to be used effectively in any adult literacy and basic education program to develop numeracy skills in learners with an interest in cars. This flexible course consists of six units. It can be taught as a short course, units can be taught individually, and units can be taught in any sequence. Each unit is divided into two sessions, each taking approximately 2 hours. Each unit includes an overview of the unit and the sessions, a list of the materials required for each session, activities, and handouts. Activities contain two different types of information: notes for the teacher and suggestions of what the teacher could say to the learner. At the end of each session, learners are asked to spend a few minutes evaluating the session and discussing any concerns they have about the session and if it is meeting their needs. A student evaluation sheet is included in Handout 4 in Unit 1 and should be used by the learners at the completion of each session. Unit titles are Getting Started; Buying a Car; How Much; Keeping Your License; Paying for a Car; and Running Costs. The booklet concludes with a teacher's checklist for each student. (YLB)
