EUB002 Numeracy: Examining Barriers for Learners

Numeracy is a crucial component of education; however, many learners continue to cite concerns over their numeracy skills well into adulthood. Educators across disciplines and areas are needed in this area who have understandings, skills and expertise around potential barriers and equity issues in numeracy education. This unit will provide you with opportunities to explore several potential issues in numeracy education, and may include psychological, socioeconomic, cultural and/or biological factors. This unit will build on knowledge and expertise gained from core units of mathematics already studied as well as numeracy concepts explored within other curriculum subjects. This unit is critical to position you as a responsive, inclusive and resilient numeracy educator in your setting.
