“Tools For The Trade – Numeracy” has been developed to help learners prepare for the workplace. The activities in every module have been developed using actual documents and scenarios contributed by local businesses and organizations. Learners will get hands-on experience with numerical calculations similar to what they may find in the workplace. The documents were collected from businesses and organizations that hire entry level workers.
The activities suggested in the workbook have been graded with increased level of complexities – starting with simple operations like addition, subtraction and multiplication and then introducing division, decimals, fractions and percentage. As the questions progress in the units problem solving and critical thinking skills are needed to do the tasks.
This workbook could be used in the classroom or tutorial sessions. English as a Second Language learners would also gain valuable workplace experience with the use of these forms.
