Adult basic education students need foundational geometry and measurement skills not only to pass high school equivalency tests, but also in the workplace. In this course, you will explore key topics in geometry, such as area, perimeter, and volume, and their importance in everyday life. You’ll look at numerous instructional activities for teaching about angles, spatial relationships, similarity, and figure transformations on a coordinate graph system.

Estimated Completion Time: 2-3 hrs/week (12 hours total)

Teaching students how to estimate, do mental math, and use calculators will help them to better understand how to use numbers. This course focuses on how to help adult students answer key questions: When is it necessary to have an exact answer, and when is an estimate sufficient? When calculation is necessary, which tool is appropriate to use? This course examines how students develop and apply number sense and provides lots of teaching strategies and activities that you can use right away.

Numerate adults do more than calculate figures. They think about the relationships between mathematical concepts and real‐life situations. They look for patterns, make predictions, and evaluate their conclusions. They can form problems, represent them, and solve them. They apply critical thinking skills. As an instructor, you help students learn by choosing appropriate problems and guiding students as they try out new reasoning and problem‐solving strategies. This course examines mathematical reasoning and problem‐solving strategies, along with lots of teaching strategies and activities that you can use right away. Additionally, connections with the Mathematical Practices of the College and Career Readiness Standards are discussed.

Estimated Completion Time: 2-3 hrs/week (12 hours total)
