There are (will be) four units of work, one for each term. There is an emphasis on Maths for business and health. Each unit comes with a photocopy able booklet. Each booklet will integrate content and standards to create a Pathway into Level 2. Two financial Literacy standards and one sociological standard have been built into the Level 1 course material and time frame. This is designed to allow those students who move at a faster pace than the rest of the class an opportunity to gain extra credits without getting out of sync with other students in the class. Free material to support 24709 can be found on the Lion’s Foundation website.
