Embedding numeracy across the school: it’s more then just mathematics

Summary

The common and agreed national goals for schooling in Australia states that ‘the curriculum will include a strong focus on literacy and numeracy skills’. However, numeracy or being numerate no longer refers to basic number skills but rather the ability to use school learnt mathematical knowledge and skills confidently with the practical demands of everyday life. By embedding numeracy across the school curriculum teachers can support students’ numeracy development. Additionally, the demands of the mathematics curriculum can be incorporated alongside subjects such as literacy, humanities, Science, PE and Health thereby covering a number of curriculum demands at once. In this workshop, teacher will explore tasks from across curriculum areas and discuss how they activate the development of numeracy.
