More and more adults are learning mathematics, either for work related purposes, or as a qualification leading to a desired course of study. Adults count too examines the low level of numeracy in our society, the reasons why this is critical and the forces acting on adults which contribute to this state of affairs. Written to encourage the development of a curriculum which is tailored to the priorities and lives of individuals, Roseanne Benn argues that mathematics is not a value-free construct, but is imbued with elitist notions which exclude and mystify. The books seeks alternative approaches to teaching mathematics which recognise the sophisticated mathematical techniques and ideas used in everyday work, domestic and leisure. This book will be of interest to adult educators who teach mathematics or to mathematics educators who teach adults.
