Database containing references to research in, and related to, adult numeracy
The database has been produced for researchers, practitioners and policy makers with an interest in adult numeracy and mathematics education.
The database is intended to be an aid to research and development in the field of adult numeracy. It will be especially useful to those studying adult numeracy for teaching qualifications in adult numeracy in England and for those studying adult numeracy and mathematics education at Masters or doctoral level or undertaking research to inform policy and practice.
As well as research specifically on adult numeracy, the database includes a range of sources from the wider mathematics education literature (across all ages), as well as relevant sources from related fields, such as psychology, sociology, etc.
Maths4Life have also just launched a time-limited moderated on-line debate on the subject of “Motivation”. They want your ideas on what motivates learners and teachers. Click here and have your say.
This discussion will be moderated – that means someone on the Maths4Life team will make sure comments get replies where appropriate, and they will separate out themes as they emerge.
