Embedded Construction materials
Downloadable embedded numeracy resources for use in a construction context
You can access the materials in Downloads.
The materials were devised by tutors at Leeds College of Building and Thomas Danby College as part of an LSC project to train Leeds College of Building staff for the OCR Level 3 Certificate in Numeracy Support. Theys focus on embedding numeracy in construction training, and cover a range of numeracy curriculum targets from Entry 2 to Level 2.
The materials have a sub-theme of 'water' aimed at highlighting common problems and misconceptions regarding capacity, of particular relevance to plumbing students.
The Excel spreadsheet 'Choosing the best supplier' also integrates IT into the package. Students could, if they wish, input their own data here.
