Adult education math and numeracy slides (Part 1 of 2)

The Adult Ed Math Courses from Literacy Minnesota were developed for remote learning situations. The slides were designed to accompany a math textbook/workbook, namely Math Sense 1. However this is only a suggestion. The slides can work with any resource, online or on paper that provides some additional practice of the concepts and strategies taught in the slides. Topics include whole numbers, fractions, decimals, mixed numbers and measurement (US and metric).
