4. Select from a range of learning resources to develop participants’ numeracy skill and knowledge

4.1 There exists a range of numeracy learning resources in our daily lives that can be utilised in promoting learner engagement and achieving numeracy learning outcomes. Identify four traditional resources and four resources from new or emerging technology, and explain how you would incorporate them into appropriate learning tasks and activities.

4.2 Practitioners need to be aware of the social and cultural background of those participating in their numeracy classes. In doing so practitioners can use materials and resources that are relevant to their social or cultural needs and so make their numeracy learning more meaningful and therefore more effective. Identify four potential cultural/social needs of a group of learners and select a set of numeracy materials/resources that relate to their cultural/social needs and explain how these would be effective in engaging the learners.
