The resource contains revised, updated and expanded versions of activities from previous popular publications, such as 'Strength in Numbers', 'Mathematics a New Beginning', 'Breaking the Maths Barrier' and 'Numeracy on the Line' which have become out of date and difficult to obtain. It also introduces a number of completely new ideas and activities which have not been previously published.
Beth Marr is widely experienced in many aspects of adult numeracy education, including teaching, curriculum development, professional development and creation of resources such as 'Mathematics: A New Beginning', 'Strength in Numbers' and 'Numeracy on the Line', all of which promote active learning ideas for adult numeracy. She has worked extensively in TAFE and later at RMIT University in teacher training for VET teachers and trainers, including many projects with trainers from developing countries.
