This Open Education Resource (OER) book represents the beginnings of a larger work (to be appended and strengthened through cooperative efforts of instructors active within the Open Education community) to provide adult basic educators with resources to meet the needs of their students. It may be used in its entirety or individual lessons may be chosen, remixed, modified, and/or recompiled. Some of the lessons have an Instructor section that directly links the lessons with the mathematical standards for content and practice found in the College and Career Readiness Standards for Adults. Other lessons have those standards deeply embedded, if not specifically and individually stated.
Both Lori Lundine and Donna Parrish are long-time instructors in the Adult Basic Education Department of Rogue Community College and have taught many years in public secondary schools. They have worked extensively on the Oregon Adult College and Career Readiness Standards and currently serve as math consultants for Oregon’s Higher Education Coordinating Commission.
