New Brunswick Aboriginal Workplace Essential Skills Curriculum: Course 14 (2010)

Working Math

The New Brunswick Aboriginal Workplace Essential Skills (NBAWES) project was designed to help Aboriginal adults improve their literacy skills and their employability. It builds on existing workplace Essential Skills material to develop a curriculum that meets the specific needs of Mi’kmaq and Maliseet adult learners.

The goal of this curriculum unit is to provide participants with an appreciation of the value of budgets, along with the skills and knowledge to create and use a budget.

Participants learn how to calculate income; describe how different situations affect a budget; calculate different kinds of taxes; prepare a budget for a trip, taking into account a variety of factors; and calculate the price, in Canadian funds, of items purchased in a foreign currency.

For each of these objectives, the authors have included criteria for assessing participants’ performance
