PP Step in to Learning for Numeracy Champions A training and development programme for Family Numeracy Champions 1.1 Module 2: Focus on numeracy
PP Learning objectives Delegates will be able to: recognise some of the main ways adult learners and children develop mathematical understanding identify the key features of family numeracy programmes evaluate the benefits to parents/carers of accessing family numeracy programmes in improving their numeracy skills and those of their children. 1.2
PP Aspects of numeracy Number – including calculations. This includes the concepts of number size and order, the so-called 4 rules, i.e. addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, as well as fractions, decimals and percentages. Handling data – that is, interpreting and using graphs, charts and tables. Measures, shape and space – this includes money, weight, temperature, capacity and time, as well as distance and size. 1.3
PP Learners should be encouraged to: work together in finding approaches and solutions welcome mistakes as learning opportunities take every opportunity to think about what they are doing at their own pace to make connections between ideas feel that they can use whatever approach or method works for them enjoy maths! 1.4 Encouraging learners…
PP Family Literacy, Language and Numeracy (FLLN) programmes are Skills for Life programmes that offer parents and carers the opportunity to: improve their literacy, language or numeracy skills help them to support their childrens literacy or numeracy learning. They can also have an impact on childrens development of literacy, language and numeracy skills. Many adult learning providers offer wider family learning courses. These programmes involve families learning a range of subjects and skills together – rather than focusing mainly on Skills for Life. 1.5 How can teachers help learners to gain skills and understanding in maths?
