The Numeracy Workbook.
This workbook is intended for students at beginner and post-beginner levels of numeracy, especially those with limited literacy skills. It takes a thematic approach to numeracy learning with everyday topics like shopping, banking, transport, and sport. Number, space measurement, and graphic texts are covered in context, through sequential activities. Instead of a table of contents, a map of the book provides the following information in chart form for each of the 10 units: topic, texts (materials needed), number (skill), space (skill), measurement (skill), and data (skill). Unit topics are: (1) at the supermarket; (2) at the bank; (3) at the doctor; (4) on public transport; (5) going by car; (6) planning a barbecue; (7) going on a trip; (8) sport and leisure; (9) around the house; and (10) at work. Each unit contains a combination of discussion topics and written exercises. Answer keys are provided at the end of the workbook. (YLB)
