A Manual for Teaching Basic Math to Adults
Authors: Kate Nonesuch
This document is a manual for teaching basic math to adults. It was written as part of a project funded by the National Office of Literacy and Learning (NOLL) and is intended for adult basic education math instructors who are interested in changing their teaching practice to bring it more in line with recommendations from the research literature on teaching numeracy to adults.
The manual sets out some "best practices" from the literature, then outlines some difficulties instructors may face in implementing them, and makes suggestions for overcoming those difficulties.
There are also many pages of activities ready for immediate classroom use that provide examples of some ways to implement the best practices.
