Adult Numeracy Instruction-Professional Development Institute 1 (ANI)
The overall vision of Adult Numeracy Instruction: Professional Development (ANI-PD) is to increase the capacity of teachers, programs, and states to provide high-quality math instruction in Adult Basic Education programs. The mathematical content of this two-day ANI-PD Institute, the first of three, consists of: number and operation sense with whole numbers and money; proportional reasoning; and geometry and measurement. Measurement and geometric shapes offer a visual representation of operations with whole numbers and the concept of proportion that, in turn, lead to developing and understanding formulae for determining perimeter, area, volume of geometric figures. Operation sense and estimation are critical elements in developing a strong base for number sense.
