Basic numeracy

Description

This course introduces or reviews basic numeracy, which leads to the practical application in calculating VAT and interest, as well as the apportionment of damages in claims. Basic calculations, such as the order of operations, percentages, the different types of calculators (standard Windows and scientific) are explained. This continues on to practical applications in the legal/ business field, simple and compound interest and who is liable to pay VAT. Some lectures have practical worksheets attached, which are downloadable.

This course was created especially for LLB students studying to pass their bar examinations to become advocates.

It is aimed at adults, for a specific purpose, as mentioned above, or for basic knowledge on some financial aspects of running a business. Entrepreneurs could also benefit from this course.

She has left teaching to pursue other interests, such as running a backpackers' camp in Malawi, selling properties, owning a candle factory and managing a tutoring company.

All of this extra (useless) information had to be added in order to meet the publication requirement of 200 words....
