The Importance of Numeracy

Lessons_and_Actvities_Numeracy

Building Powerful Numeracy for Middle and High School Students brought the world of research on numeracy at the elementary level to the secondary level, helping teachers build numeracy in their students and showing how that work supports students in understanding higher math. Now, with Lessons and Activities for Building Powerful Numeracy, Pam Harris continues her work by offering lessons and activities that promote her strategies for teaching as much mathematics as possible with as little memorization as possible.

In the following video, Pam talks about the importance of numeracy and why it's necessary to build numeracy from a young age. "Math is not about memorizing rules," explains Pam, "it's about using relationships and connections. Numeracy is the beginning of that."
