Hurst, Jessica L.
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v105 n2 p35-37 2013
In today's competitive job market, education is increasingly touted as necessary preparation for the workplace (Joyce, Hassall, Montano, & Anes, 2006). The literature suggests that one of the most important skill sets identified by both educators and practitioners is the need for numerical competency and analytical proficiency (Joyce et al., 2006). Hence, it is critical to prepare family and consumer sciences (FCS) students with the analytical and numeracy skills necessary to support their future educational and career-related goals.
