Project Details

Overview: 

Information and resources related to embedding literacy and numeracy into engineering programmes for learners working towards qualifications at NZQF Levels 1 to 3. Covers topics such as the metric measurement system; area and perimeter; and the Pythagoras theorem.

 

Key Points to Note:

  • Embedding literacy and numeracy in specific programmes demonstrates good teaching practice.
  • These resources, although contextualised, are not limited to these contexts and can be transferable to other programmes and industries.
  • To get started, watch the Introduction to Engineering Resources video.
  • Keep in mind, some teaching and learning sequence resources have supporting resources, including activity cards, charts, and worksheets.
