Making Numeracy Visible

Numeracy is the ability, confidence and willingness to engage with quantitative and spatial information to make informed decisions in all aspects of daily life.

RVS Numeracy Framework

 RVS students become numerate through the three pillars of Fluency, Reasoning and Problem Solving

 

What is Numeracy?

Numeracy is how we make sense of the world around us. How do we share this with RVS Learners and what does it look like in our schools?

Fluency

Fluency is established when—through carefully constructed experiences—students become fluent in the foundations of mathematics through varied and frequent practice with developmentally appropriate and increasingly complex tasks.

Reasoning

Reasoning is fundamental to knowing and doing of mathematics. Reasoning is the deep learning that occurs when–through the solving of rich, highly cognitive tasks, rigorous discussion and reflection–students make connections among conceptual ideas

Problem Solving

Problem Solving is the primary focus of numeracy and is a means through which students can make connections to their experiences in and out of the classroom. It is an intellectual and creative process where students engage with challenging authentic and non-routine tasks where the path to a solution is not obvious.
