ABE 012 Beginning ABE Literacy - Math 1 (1 to 6 credits



Course Description
Designed for students to learn identification, ordering, adding, and subtracting of whole numbers.

Student Outcomes
1.
M1.1 Read, write, and interpret very simple types of mathematical information such as
Numbers and number sense: whole numbers (three digit numbers), common monetary values, and benchmark fractions (1/2, 1/4).
Patterns/Functions/Relationships: very simple patterns, commonly-used denominations/groupings (2s, 5s, 10s); mathematical relationships – more, less, larger, smaller, left, right, heavier, longer.
Space/Shape/Measurement: high frequency standard units of measurement (pounds, feet, months, weeks, days, minutes, hours), and concepts of geometric shape, length and width.
Data/Statistics: very simple ways to interpret and represent data (checksheets, picture graphs,) emphasizing frequency of occurrence.
M1.2 Recall and use a few simple mathematical procedures such as very basic estimating, counting, sorting, ordering, grouping, adding on (using counting or a calculator), orally counting by 2s, 5s and 10s, addition and subtraction and beginning multiplication.
M1.3 Evaluate the degree of precision needed for the solution.
M1.4 Extract discrete information from simple and concrete data and graphs, describe patterns, and/or use basic computational procedures effectively to solve a problem and to verify that the solution is reasonable.
M1.5 Communicate the solution to the problem orally, in role plays, with pictures, or by entries on a simple chart.
2. Goal Setting
G1.1 Monitor progress on educational goals as they relate to their roles as students, workers, citizens, and family members.
