Summary

This document discusses the term 'numeracy' which is also known as 'mathematical literacy' in some parts of the world. In Australia, the term numeracy carries different meanings based on the particular education system, which creates difficulties in both communication and research. The study investigates Australian children's numeracy achievement and describes effective instructional practices in numeracy. Chapters include: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "What Is Numeracy?"; (3) "Performance of Australian Children"; (4) "Practice in Numeracy"; (5) "Programs for Improving Numeracy Learning"; (6) "Possibilities in Numeracy"; and (7) "References." (YDS)
