                                                                    LDCC (locally developed compulsory

This course enables students to broaden their understanding of mathematics as it is applied in the workplace
and daily life. Students will solve problems associated with earning money, paying taxes, and making
purchases; apply calculations of simple and compound interest in saving, investing, and borrowing; and
calculate the costs of transportation and travel in a variety of situations. Students will consolidate their
mathematical skills as they solve problems and communicate their thinking.

The mathematical processes are to be integrated into student learning in all areas of this course.
In this course, students examine and reflect on personal goals and aspirations and understand them in the
context of the world around them and in the traditions of Catholic teachings. As they develop reasoning and
critical thinking skills, they are better able to apply Christian values to pose and solve problems, to make
informed decisions, and to contribute to the well being of their local and world community. They realize
that, as they become informed and conscientious citizens they make choices that affect their own lives as
well as others in the community at large.
