Numeracy and Quantitative Reasoning Initiative at the University of Guelph

Presenter 1
Michelle Edwards
University of Guelph

Numeracy has been identified as a long standing learning objective for the University of Guelph from 1987 through to 2006.  A successful application to the Learning Enhancement Fund program at the University of Guelph has lead to the creation of a multidisciplinary group comprised of individuals from Teaching Support Services, the Mathematics and Statistics department, the Data Resource Centre, the Library, the Learning Commons and Computing and Communications Service to spearhead the initiative.  The group will be responsible for the development of a repository to collect and disseminate learning objects that will build new opportunities for students to improve their numeracy and quantitative reasoning skills.  This paper will outline the purpose of the initiative and will share development strategies and progress to date.
