Being numerate involves more than mastering basic mathematics. Numeracy connects the mathematics learned at school with out-of-school situations that require capabilities such as problem solving critical judgment and sense-making related to non-mathematical contexts. This book provides prospective and practising teachers with practical research-based strategies for embedding numeracy across the primary and secondary school curriculum.Based on the authors' ten-year research program the text explains what numeracy is and how numeracy has developed as an educational goal. It describes in detail the five dimensions of the authors' model: attention to real-life contextsapplication of mathematical knowledgeuse of physical representational and digital toolsthe promotion of positive dispositions towards the use of mathematics to solve problems encountered in day-to-day lifeand a critical orientation to interpreting mathematical results and making evidence-based judgements. There is guidance on how to embed numeracy across all subjects within the curriculum how to assess numeracy learning and how to deal with challenges and dilemmas including working with discipline boundaries and developing support resources.Featuring practical examples and case studies throughout this book will build pre-service teacher confidence demystify common misconceptions and grounds theory into practice in this vital area of student competency.'The authors of this text are recognised authorities on numeracy. They have engaged heavily in numeracy research over many years and this text reflects the depth of their understanding and knowledge.' - Geoff Hilton University of QueenslandRead more
