#### MATH-020 - ALFM Level I & II -

Course Details
This British Columbia Adult Literacy Fundamental Mathematics (ALFM) Level I and Level II course will give students a strong foundation of basic skills, concepts, mathematical vocabulary, and problem solving strategies to prepare them to meet personal, career or further academic goals. Both Level I and Level II outcomes must be met to satisfy the requirements for this course. Math 020 is the pre-requisite for Math 030. Some of the topics include whole numbers, operations, and estimation.
