Literacy and Numeracy. Resources for schools This section supports schools with whole-school approaches to literacy and numeracy improvement that are embedded within the school’s strategic improvement and accountability plan. It supports leadership-driven planning and improvement through explicitly and actively connecting whole-school improvement through evidenced-based approaches including: using data to inform whole school and classroom planning, teaching and assessmentsupporting a collaborative approach to teacher capacity building including structured classroom observations and feedbackengaging parents and the community in understanding the importance of literacy and numeracy to successful student learning outcomes.

Leader - These resources and professional learning programs are aimed at school leaders and provide a whole school approach to improving student literacy and numeracy outcomes.

A mathematician, like a painter or a poet, is a maker of patterns… The mathematician’s patterns, like the painter’s or the poet’s must be beautiful; the ideas like the colours or the words, must fit together in a harmonious way. Beauty is the first test.GH Hardy As some readers will no doubt be aware, I’m no mathematician. It might then seem presumptuous to take a view on the teaching of numeracy, but I think the fact that I’m not naturally numerate gives me a perspective that other, more mathematically minded thinkers might lack.

My first, rather trite observation is that numeracy is not the same as literacy. Being literate – able to read, write and communicate – is, to one degree or another, essential for all school subjects. Despite the clunky misnomer, ‘literacy’ (and by literacy I mean language) is present in every lesson whether we want it there or not. But, like literacy, the concept of ‘numeracy’ desperately needs some unpicking.

For pity’s sake, why? Here are some possibilities: Street Math | Laura Overdeck | TEDxJerseyCity.
