Building confidence and understanding in numeracy ACE Conference 2019.pdf

This is Damon Whitten workshop presentation at the ACE Conference 2019.

Damon Whitten is a specialist provider of literacy and numeracy to educators working with foundation-level learners. He focuses on generating and connecting research to real-world contexts and using the results to support adults with their dreams, passions, and potential through mathematics education.

As we know, many adult learners (and tutors!) find numeracy instruction a challenge. To help with this, Damon will present a toolbox of activities that tutors can use to introduce learners to numeracy ideas and then, once their confidence is growing, extend their thinking. Participants will leave with new ideas, practical activities, and a renewed interest in developing numeracy.
