Numeracy is defined as the ability to access, use and interpret and communicate mathematical information and ideas, in order to engage in and manage the mathematical demands of various situations in life. To be numerate is to confidently and effectively use Mathematics to meet the everyday demands of life.
Numeracy is important for individuals to develop logical thinking and reasoning strategies in their everyday activities. We need numeracy to solve problems and make sense of numbers, time, patterns and shapes for activities and even playing sport. The importance of this subject can therefore not be overemphasized.
Levels Taught: Lower Primary, Upper Primary
Prepclass Tutor Since: August 2016
I have helped many struggling students achieve their choice grades, I am firm, friendly and committed to my work. I have an innovative capacity to ensure that impressive results are achieved from my students.
I hope to instill a genuine interest in the subjects! Once that interest is sparked it becomes much easier for students to motivate themselves, a skill which will help them extract as much joy as possible from all their future learning.
I believe it is equally important to instill a sense of organisation into my students. Not just in the practical sense of effective note taking and filing but also in relation to a students ability to organize their own thoughts.
I help my students to do this by talking often and in depth with them about problem solving in general and how we can apply the same techniques across a huge range of subjects and questions.
It has often been said that education is less about learning facts by rote and more about training yourself to think about the world in a different (and hopefully more useful) way.
I also like to engage my students in conversations that take us well beyond the sometimes restrictive syllabus.
