Teaching for numeracy and mathematics transfer in tertiary science
This project aimed to identify and implement pedagogical strategies designed to facilitate the transfer of numeracy and mathematical skills and knowledge to science disciplines. To achieve this aim a review of the literature was conducted that yielded numerous teaching and learning strategies for successful transfer of knowledge across contexts with potential to use in the sciences. Six strategies were chosen by lecturers and academic developers for field testing in science courses because they met three main criteria: 1) they were relevant to the course context; 2) they were practical and accessible to lecturers; and 3) they were effective in helping students see the connections between mathematics and science.
