Workshop Details

This kono develops educators’ ability to develop learners’ numeracy skills with a focus on proportional reasoning skills. 

Proportional reasoning is a core aspect of many daily, workplace, and programme numeracy tasks, particularly those that present the most difficulties for adults. In fact, many difficulties with numeracy can be traced to this domain. Yet many educators are unaware of proportional reasoning and its relationship with measurement, place value, percentages, decimals, ratio and fractions.

Learning outcomes

  • Understand the ‘big idea’ of proportional reasoning 
  • Learn how to use the Assessment Tool to identify learner skills and needs
  • A step-by-step approach to designing effective sequenced plans that develop learner skills 
  • Gain a ‘toolbox’ of fun, effective strategies and activities ready to be used with learners.

This course is packed with fun, interesting, and energising activities guaranteed to revitalise your numeracy lessons. If your numeracy delivery is a little tired – this is sure to pump some life into it.
