Math for Every Day

Free

with Vanessa Richards

Calendar Sep 18, 2017 at 11 am, runs for 20 weeks

One of the challenges about math is that since many of us don't use it every day, it's hard to remember what we've been taught. This course will cover math that we use every day - when we are shopping, doing projects around the house, balancing our checkbooks, or preparing our meals. We'll use a hands-on approach to learning math concepts so you can confidently use it in your daily life, as well as build skills and confidence to tackle more advanced math that you might want or need for school or work. High School diploma credit is awarded for this course.

The first step to taking this class is to request a meeting with our student advisor. Call Ellsworth Adult Education at 207.664.7110, email adultedinfo@ellsworthschools.org or stop by our office located in the Mill Mall.
