As part of Math Synergy Project stream, project teams will be exploring innovative ways to support numeracy. As defined in the BC Ministry of Education document, numeracy is the ability to understand and apply mathematical concepts, processes, and skills to solve problems and make decisions in a variety of situations, including real-life scenarios.
Numeracy assessment looks at learning which has taken place throughout the student’s education, not only in mathematics, but across various subjects.
