Numeracy at the University of Guelph: One Year Later - Where Are We Now?

Presenter 1
Michelle Edwards
University of Guelph

In 2006-2007, the Data Resource Centre was the lead partner in a multidisciplinary project entitled “Numeracy and Quantitative Reasoning Initiative” at the University of Guelph. The goal of the project was to build new opportunities to improve numeracy and quantitative reasoning skills, and to help students overcome their insecurities around dealing with numbers. The repository was built and populated during the summer and now houses several learning objects covering topics from numbers to graphing data. This paper will showcase the Numeracy repository and the format of the learning objects contained within. The paper will also discuss how the project took shape and the different ways it is being used by the University of Guelph faculty.
