Orientations to Numeracy: Teacher's Confidence and Disposition to Use Mathematics across the Curriculum
Thornton, Steve; Hogan, John
International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 28th, Bergen, Norway, July 14-18, 2004
Numeracy can be defined as having the competence and disposition to use mathematics to meet the general demands of life at home, in paid work, and for participation in community and civic life (Willis 1992). An important aspect of developing the capacity to use mathematics in everyday life is, for students at school, to use mathematics to meet the demands of other curriculum areas. Just as literacy has become every teacher's responsibility, so numeracy needs to be seen as integral to every learning area. [For complete proceedings, see ED489597.]
