Connecting numeracy, mathematics and the world of work


This presentation will highlight a number of issues related to how mathematics and numeracy are crucial, underpinning skills required in the workplace, increasingly so in the 21st century. Dave will share his insights into numeracy/mathematics skills, trends and research gained from his extensive experiences in working in different workplaces, in adult education and training and in national and international numeracy research and assessment. The presentation will reflect on this knowledge in relation to data about numeracy skills and abilities. Evidence exists to show that numeracy should be made a priority, and that it is vital to build the foundational numeracy and mathematics skills that work and life in the 21st century requires. And how can we better prepare our students for this world of work?
