Numeracy across the curriculum

Recommended Posts

A year ago my secondary school applied successfully for the Basic Skills Quality Mark. To support our bid, I created an online portal dedicated to literacy and numeracy in each of the core and foundation subjects of the National Curriculum:

Hope this resource helps. Please let me know if it does (or doesn't), as I value feedback. Although I have now posted half a dozen messages on Education Forum, I have yet to receive a single reply. I may be in Newcastle upon Tyne, but I'm beginning to wonder whether I'm also in Coventry...

Sorry about that. I am afraid we do not have many maths teachers on the forum. Maybe your contributions will change that.

I would like to feature your website in a future edition of Education on the Internet (see below). The journal currently has 52,210 subscribers. Please send details (about 1500 words) and the URL that you want me to link to from our website. This can either be a summary of your whole website or of different sections.

I am very interested in integrating music with maths. One model I have been working with recently is using the Fibonnacci series and relating this to musical pitch as a composing tool. If you have any ideas, please post them here.

Hi David

I was just changing my E-mail address and your message appeared on the screen. I hope somebody has responded to you -- if not, here I am.

My name is Gary Reid -- a retired head of mathematics in a school board here in Ontario. I am now teaching part-time at Seneca College [http://www.senecac.on.ca].

We recently changed the math curriculum for high school here in Ontario to the discovery/graphing calculators/geometry software/groups/journals approach. Haven't looked at your material yet --- but this "new" approach is a disaster for about 80% of the kids. Hence, it has not been followed -- although most of the textbooks are written that way. You knw, 800-page textbooks with lots of pix, political correctness -- and some mathematics buried somewhere.

Anyway, its back to school here tomorrow -- I will try to look at your material.

Sincerely,

Gary Reid
