M is for Money (Not Maths)


What is M is for Money(Not Maths) ?

Did you wish you could improve your Mathematics with a personal journey that allowed you to only work on the parts of Mathematics you didn’t understand ?  Well now everyone in the Youth Eco-system can have access to a course that allows them to do this while developing their usable mathematics skills.

What could this be used for ?  First of all, being able to ace job applications that involve Numeracy Assessments tests is a primary benefit of this course.  There is nothing like feeling confident in an interview and when asked, 2 out of 3 candidates said that Mathematics Numeracy tests were very intimidating for them and affected their ability to feel confident in interviews. After this course, they all said they felt more confident in interviews.

The main full length course has been designed for Learnership, Internship or YES Youth attendees in order to allow them to succeed in the jobs that they are hoping to get.  This solution is for working adults to identify their current stage of Mathematics ability followed by a personal journey to help them progress towards an acceptable level of numeracy in the workplace.  This is achieved through an online learning platform that is designed to take them on a step-by-step journey through the mathematics concepts that they need to master, along with an in-person facilitator that assists them with their journey towards this goal.

There are various modules available and Lucha Lunako curates the adult learners’ journey in person with a focus on how mathematics is really all about money and the relevance of money to their lives.  This has key resonance with young people who are needing skills in the world of money everyday.  Many young people have had a negative experience with mathematics in general and making a platform available alone is not sufficient to get learners to participate in advancing their skills.  What is needed is a context in which mathematics is addressed in the context of goals and dreams that learners already have for example: to help them get a job, to make them better at the job they have or to help them with the money that they generate in their current job.  This is the context that the M is for Money (Not Maths) focuses on that makes it a successful course for learners to be motivated enough to progress.

Benefits of M is For Money:

  • The ability to learn at your own pace

  • Focusing only on the gaps that need improvement

  • You can work on mobile device if they do not have access to a computer

  • Improving your maths skills to have stand a better chance to apply for employment

  • Being able to interpret and analyse data at work

  • The program prepares our youth for real life situations that require individuals to make decision

  • Improves the participants ability to solve problems

  • Being able to process numbers accurately

  • M is for money prepares participants to have healthy habits towards their money in their side hustles or personal lives.

    Delivery of the course:

    We live in a world where technology is evolving at a rapid rate. Learning from a mobile device and through virtual sessions has become the new norm. We find that the youth of this generation find it easier to learn by accessing tools from the web.

    Our approach to conducting the course is broken down into 2 parts. We first have “connections sessions” that take place before learners work on improving their maths. The objective of these sessions is to motivate the participants as they prepare to do their work. The sessions illustrate real life situations where maths is applied, and as such, our participants develop an understanding of why it is important to improve their mathematical skills. These sessions may be delivered synchronously online, or might be delivered by an in-room facilitator using pre-recorded content. 

    After the connection sessions, participants log into an online system where they can have lessons. These lessons are personalised according to an initial assessment, which means participants cover only the gaps that they have. 

    It is clear that our youth really need this intervention in order to move their mathematical ability forward.
