This page is dedicated to providing learners with resources, mainly exam papers and exemplars with links to most publicly available papers. You van the learners this page address for revision purposes.

My paper on the agonies and successes of creating an informal online community of practice /learning ecology for mathematical literacy teachers in South Africa. It also explains the tools I used and how it impact(ed) on the community.

Statistics and probability play an important part in our lives and are particularly useful in
helping us make wise decisions. This exercise will help the students see that there are mathematical rules that can effect even our use of the English language.
GRADES/SUBJECT: Appropriate for Grades 7 though 12. Mathematics and English language.
PURPOSE: This exercise re-enforces the value of statistical research and provides an interesting view of the way people write.

The 30 videos offered by Mindset give a good overview of the content of the Mathematical Literacy curriculum and rich ideas for ways of teaching it in an engaging way that helps learners see how relevant this subject is for them.

mission: the math literacy project provides opportunities for students to achieve in a college preparatory mathematics curriculum so that they may gain access to educational, economic, and social resources that will lead to individual empowerment, independence, and social justice.
