Numeracy

Numeracy
This assignment continues the theme of numeracy as the confidence and capability to choose and use mathematics as part everyday activity by inviting pairs of pre-service teachers to describe, conduct and present an investigation connected to an interest, task or problem from their lifeworlds.
The investigation needs to have a rich mathematical focus and lead to some action being taken. For example, choosing the “best” mobile phone plan to suit personal needs, costing and completing a landscaping project or vegetable patch or taking action to reduce personal or family use of a resource such as water, electricity, energy.

Preparation for assignment 3, choosing the “best” mobile phone plan to suit personal needs
You should do the following to prepare for this assignment:
•    choose a peer partner;
•    choose an investigation that provides opportunity exploration is rich in mathematics, involves aspects of financial mathematics and can lead to taking informed action;
•    discuss the potential of this investigation with your course lecturer;
•    revisit both Forrest (1997) and Scott (2000) and choose either framework;
•    explore a possible medium to present your paired presentation such as:
o    poster,
o    web-page,
o    PowerPoint, Keynote or Prezi,
o    model,
o    booklet or brochure
o    photo story or video, and /or
o    oral presentation with notes.
•    become familiar with the assessment criteria as described on the assignment feedback form.
The assignment requires you to work in pairs and undertake an investigation of a mathematics rich interest, task or problem and then present the investigation and the actions their investigation suggests.
In particular the presentation should:
•    briefly describe the focus of the investigation;
•    describe how the investigation was planned and conducted with a focus thinking and working mathematically;
•    identify key aspects of mathematics that were chosen and used to conduct the investigation, in particular which aspects of financial mathematics, number, geometry, data handling, chance and / or measurement;
•    choose one aspect of mathematics key to the investigation and discuss this aspect of mathematics from historical perspective;
•    discuss, with examples, how either the four roles of a numerate person (Forrest, 1997) or the essential ingredients of numeracy (Scott, 2000) underpin the investigation, and
•    describe the personal action this investigation preciptated
•    reference key resources used in both the investigation and the presentation.
