*Foundations of Teaching Adult Numeracy (Spring 2010)*



*Description:*

What is numeracy? Is numeracy just another word for math? How should you
approach numeracy with adult students? In this foundational course you'll
learn how to keep students at the center of numeracy instruction. You'll
explore the context, content, and cognitive and affective components of
numeracy, how to address the needs of students with learning gaps, how
students' styles of learning math and levels of math knowledge affect their
math skills, and ways to build student's success in learning math. You'll
plan classroom activities, test them with your students, and share your
experiences with fellow teachers.

This course was written by Barbara Goodridge, Lowell Adult Education Center,
Lowell, Mass.

*Objective:*

By the end of the course, you will be able to

- describe the three components of numeracy—context, content, and
cognitive and affective—and why it is important to address each component;
- understand and address the needs of students with learning gaps in
math;
- recognize how different styles of learning math and different levels of
math knowledge effect students’ math skills;
- explain ways to build students’ skills in the components of numeracy
for success in learning math.
