Job Numeracy (2008)

This document is one in a series of three tutor resources designed for tutors of low-literacy adults. The goal of the series is to help tutors identify the workplace essential skills a student already has, increase his skill set, and develop his awareness of his own capabilities.

The instructor section of each binder part contains sequenced activities reflecting a number of entry-level workplace settings from the Human Resources and Skills Development Canada website.

In the Job Numeracy document, learning activities focus first on numbers and progress from there to counting, number operations, money, and time.

The authors note that while the primary focus is on numeracy, there are elements of other workplace essential skills embedded in the lessons that will lead to incidental learning. For example, the forms used for lessons help improve the student’s document use.
