Numeracy - the important role of proportional reasoning

Numeracy is a key educational priority and core across all learning areas in the school curriculum. Proportional reasoning is an elusive concept but permeates the entire school curriculum. The Australian Curriculum: Mathematics includes applying and interpreting proportional reasoning as integral to one of the elements of numeracy.

In this presentation, numeracy as a component of the Australian Curriculum is overviewed, and compared and contrasted with national and international definitions of numeracy. Research into the development of proportional reasoning as a key to numeracy is presented. Activities for incorporating students’ natural and intuitive proportional reasoning capabilities into rich learning experiences for numeracy are shared.

She has been a teacher educator for over 15 years and was previously a classroom teacher in primary and secondary schools for 10 years. Shelley’s current research focus is on the importance of proportional reasoning as a foundation for numeracy. Her passion in teaching is on the creation of rich learning experiences to foster students’ conceptual understanding of mathematics in order to promote success and enjoyment of mathematics in school.
