Numeracy At Work
Numeracy at Work is a collection of workplace examples which illustrate on-the-job applications of numeracy: Money Math, Scheduling or Budgeting and Accounting Math, Measurement and Calculation Math and Data Analysis Math. Numeracy At Work uses stories from workers across Canada to illustrate how they use numeracy in their jobs, and provides activities and suggestions for further exploration. These applied work activities are intended as a resource for educators to enrich their instructional activities. The binder format encourages flexibility and all parts of the book may be photocopied for educational use.
