ABX 0126A - Mathematics for Adults C (Face-to-Face)

The purpose of Adult Basic Education is to give students an opportunity to apply knowledge and skills related to the area of basic literacy and life skills for adults who are performing at or below the ninth-grade level. The content develops basic literacy in all areas of knowledge but specifically in the area of Math. After 50 hours of remediation, a student may be eligible to retake state approved assessment for advancement.

This program is divided into Reading, Mathematics, and Language Arts Literacy Completion Points (LCPs). Progress through levels (LCPs) may be measured by approved standardized tests or documentation of mastery of competencies. It is not intended that students will progress through the performance standards sequentially. The instructor may present topic-centered lessons that integrate benchmarks from several performance standards. All activities are developed to be done either individually or in groups.
The computer skills are not required, as access to computer technology is not provided to every student. The computer sections are optional and will not be necessary to earn Educational Functioning Levels (EFLs) and/or Literacy Completion Points (LCPs).

This low intermediate level non-credit course is divided into two major parts: mathematics computation and math applications. The computation portion includes number sense, concepts, and operations; measurement; geometry and spatial sense; algebraic thinking; data analysis and probability. The application portion teaches the student to use mathematical concepts to solve problems encountered in daily living.
