  4. 4. www.pdst . ie  Numeracy is NOT LIMITED to the ability to use numbers, to add, subtract, multiply and divide.  Numeracy encompasses the ability to use mathematical understanding and skills to solve problems and meet the demands of day-to-day living in complex social settings.  Numeracy involves being able to: • Think and communicate quantitatively • Make sense of data • Have a spatial awareness • Understand patterns and sequences • Recognise situations where mathematical reasoning can be applied to solve problems. (National Literacy & Numeracy Strategy, 2011)
  5. 5. www.pdst . ie Numeracy • There are opportunities to acquire numeracy skills and concepts in History. • Questioning, explanations, justifications and higher order thinking should be used and explored where appropriate. • Where numeracy arises in a natural, uncontrived manner the language, procedure, and concept should be dealt with in a manner that is consistent to that of the mathematics department.
  6. 6. www.pdst . ie Numeracy In history certain topics give rise to opportunities for subject teachers to reinforce common language, procedures, and concepts that students experience in mathematics lessons
  7. 7. www.pdst . ie Can you identify numeracy moments in the teaching of the History syllabi?
  8. 8. www.pdst . ie Activity Number, money, measure Data handling Shape & Space Relationships & patterns
  9. 9. www.pdst . ie Number, Money & Measure Data Handling • Are students encouraged to estimate, calculate and check their answers? • Are the approaches used in line with and of the same standard as those the students would use in mathematics lessons? • Where appropriate is the concept of bias discussed in lessons? • Are students encouraged to choose appropriate graphical representations? • Are students encouraged to retrieve, interpret and draw conclusions from the data presented? • Can students identify and give examples of primary and secondary data? Shape and Space Relationships & Patterns • Are students encouraged to estimate, calculate and check various measurements? • Are students encouraged to use appropriate units of measure? • Can students identify the architectural features from key periods in history? • Are students encouraged to make connections between cause and effect?
