Numeracy Learning and Teaching

This assignment is based on your own teaching practice

In this assignment you will provide evidence of:

How you assess, plan and record appropriate learning goals; how you draw on principles of good practice in your planning and delivery of numeracy learning and teaching; and how you use language, literacy and collaborative work in the numeracy classroom

You will produce a portfolio in three parts, which will draw on sessions from your teaching practice.  The parts are detailed below, but throughout you need to show evidence of research and include pertinent citations.  Resources and materials used in the sessions should be included.





Part A Initial assessment and goal-setting (1100 words)


Critically analyse the processes of initial assessment, diagnostic assessment and goal setting for post compulsory mathematics.


Critically evaluate a specific assessment tool with respect to validity, reliability, efficiency and equality of access.


Part B   Principles of effective numeracy learning and teaching (1200words)

This section demonstrates your understanding of the principles of effective numeracy learning and teaching, and how you draw on these principles in your planning.

Select a session from your Teaching practice.  The session must include one resource which you have created or adapted yourself.  

The plans and materials for the session should be accompanied by a 1200 word report.  The report must be clearly related to activities shown on your session plan, and should demonstrate the numeracy learning principles and approaches which underpin the planning, delivery, assessment and evaluation of your session.

In your report show clearly: 

How learners’ initial and diagnostic assessment and other learning needs informs planning of numeracy learning and teaching which meets curriculum requirements and motivates learners.

How you select numeracy resources and equipment for suitability and impact, adapting and creating alternatives.

The verbal, written and visual strategies you use to improve numeracy learning in your session.

How you use collaborative learning to establish and maintain a supportive and challenging   environment.

Examples of how you use learners’ mistakes in numeracy as opportunities for further learning.

How technology can be used to enhance learning.

Evaluation of your session based on learner outcomes, learner feedback and personal reflection.


In your account you should demonstrate critical engagement with current theories and principles of effective practice, and reflectively evaluate their application to your own practice.


Part C Working with others to promote numeracy and wider skills in learning programmes (1000 words)


From your PP placement or workplace, obtain a list of learning programmes on offer (either within the centre, or within your own curriculum area). 


Select a learning programme other than numeracy or mathematics from the list, for example, a vocational programme such as plumbing, engineering or childcare. Discuss how numeracy might be included within that programme.


Consider both discrete and embedded numeracy provision and critically evaluate the effectiveness of each approach.


Describe strategies you use to enable learners to develop their language and literacy skills and to extend their numeracy vocabulary. You may give examples from the session used in part B if you wish or refer to other sessions you have taught.
