Questions related to Numeracy

Hello, I am interested converting word numerals to numbers task, e.g

- 'twenty two' -> 22

- 'hundred five fifteen eleven' -> 105 1511 etc.

And the problem I can't understand at all currently is for a number 1234567890 there are many ways we can write this number in words:

=> 12-34-56-78-90 is 'twelve thirty four fifty six seventy eight ninety'

=> 12-34-576-890 is 'twelve thirty four five hundred seventy six eight hundred ninety'

=> 123-456-78-90 is '(one)hundred twenty three four hundred fifty six seventy eight ninety'

=> 12-345-768-90 is 'twelve three hundred forty five seven hundred sixty eight ninety'

and so on (Here I'm using dash for indicating that 1234567890 is said in a few parts).

Hence, all of the above words should be converted into 1234567890.

I am reading following papers in the hopes of tackling this task:

But so far I still can't understand how would one go about solving this task.

Thank you

I'm helping a friend out who's research is on Examining Numeracy Competency of Students and the Sustainability in Fiji: A case study of secondary school.

Other questions include: Variables to measure Numeracy Competency? and the Methodology and Sampling?

Just needs some input on these questions. Thanks

Adult learners are those who missed a chance to complete school in formal education. They leave school pre-maturely at primary (elementary) level due to different problems. Some just fail to make it to secondary school, others manage to pass but fail to complete secondary school. With their own interest or a push from someone else, they come to learn and would want to bridge this gap later in their life.

I have performed an experiment and unsure which statistical test to use. I randomly assign participants to 1 of 3 conditions, a score was measured. I also tested the participants numeracy score before the experiment. Which would be the best statistical test to run to find out the impact of the numeracy score on the score, per condition. Ie. see if there is an 'optimum' condition depending on what they scored on the numeracy test.

Dear Researchers and Friends

My name is Kamyar Azimi, an Educational Psychology PhD student, Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz, Ahvaz, Iran.

As you might be in the know that there are many sanctions being held against Iran, I do not have access to preschool or kindergarten early numeracy skills screeners or early numeracy scale tools which are pivotal to my PhD dissertation.

I would highly appreciate it if you can give me a hand in providing me with a copy of these and other valuable information in the tools and measurement section.

I will forever be grateful your kindness, help, and response which is of tremendous help in the development of this project.

Respectfully

Azimi, K

My research thesis relates to 'Caregivers' intervention on readiness of preschoolers transitioning from kindergarten to primary school in the area of

1) Social-emotional readiness (learning to share, care and avoid aggression)

2) Cognitive readiness (critical thinking, literacy and numeracy)

3) School outcome (attitudes to learning, motivation, and persistence)

I coordinate HIPPY program (hippyaustralia.bsl.org.au) in Launceston. It's a literacy and numeracy based school-readiness program to promote positive teaching and learning at home. I am interested in your project and would like to be a part of it, if possible.

Thanks, Aparna

I have an Independent Variable - 'scenario'. This variable is 2x2 (2 different message formats and 2 different message periods), respondents were distributed randomly to one of these. I want to test possible moderators: Age, Gender, Previous Experience, Numeracy and Graph Literacy on a Dependent variable (Likert, 7-schales). I have been trying to do it (using SPSS) but there are too many variables to make it work.

Do I need to create 3 (of 4) different groups for 'scenario', where 3 times a different scenario is 1 and the rest 0. And after this, for all moderating variables, create a new variable. For example gender: 'gender*Scenario1' gender*Scenario2' 'gender*Scenario3' and do this as well for the other 4 moderators, or is there a simpler answer?

Also, my dependent variable is not normality distributed, does this create extra problems?

I need this measurements to use them quantitatively for my research.

to create a summary of developments within literacy/numeracy in Australian HE post the Bradley report and in relation to increasingly diverse cohorts with a wide variety of literacy levels.

Has anyone come across current research on using mathematical literature to enhance numeracy in primary? specifically k-2

I would be interested in studies from any discipline.

There is a dearth of research on specific interventions and their effect on learning of numeracy. I would love some direction to articles, videos, infographics etc.

We've looked at the idea that oral teaching is good. Oral plus visuals is better, oral teaching plus visuals plus kinaesthetic could be amazing. Who is using kinaesthetic learning for numeracy concepts and how?

Many students in urban classrooms have mathematics difficulties. In particular many have very poor basic numeracy skills. I am currently writing my dissertation in this area. The approach will be to do a supplementary intervention to improve automaticity and to study how students performance in the classroom is impacted by improved levels of fluency. This will hopefully free up working memory thus allowing students to engage in the actual mathematics and not be bogged down with the underlying numeracy calculations and facts.

I have been searching and my best options for individual assessment, so far, are the Test of Early Numeracy and the Number Sense Brief. I would really like to use a group administered test.

I am designing a research questionnaire on the experiences of adults learning numeracy. To assess the reliability and validity of my questionnaire I woul like to see a copy of a similar instrument that has been used successfully in a similar inquiry. Or a relevant source or literature.
