ab: Summary: This article describes a teacherâ€™s maths lesson that focuses on
numeracy in health and physical education learning area. In the lesson,
the students were learning about Directed Numbers, something they often
struggle with and a topic where the teacher finds it hard to explain
using real life situations when using addition and subtraction. The
teacher began the lesson by outlining what students were expected to
achieve. The introduction also included revisiting previous work on how
to convert an individualâ€™s number of walking paces to kilometres, as
well as directions for the activity that was to follow. The teacher
wants to emphasise with other teachers that numeracy is not just about
number and that there is great potential to address other strands of
mathematics within all learning areas. (ERIC)
