Database containing references to research in, and related to, adult numeracy

Database


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.
