Ms Nonesuch uses experiences of her own and other basic skills mathematics teachers to describe four particular strategies that are important to making the transition to more active learning in numeracy classrooms.

She discusses breaking down the barriers that arise to making change, particularly the ones erected by the students themselves.

Recognizing the importance of a productive disposition in learners, she introduces strategies that address emotions (particularly anxiety) that are detrimental to the process of learning.

The manual also includes reproducible worksheets that offer concrete examples of the strategies discussed earlier in the manual.

This document is a manual for teaching basic math to adults.
