Breaking down adult numeracy resistance

New methods of instruction are required to break down adult numeracy resistance which has developed over years. Previous experiences play a major role in adult numeracy resistance. Negative experiences regarding competency in the subject and the lack of understanding why specific topics are taught are reasons why adult numeracy resistance exist. As such it is important to show the relevancy of what is taught immediately. The information must be applicable to day to day living and their work environments. We also need to recognize that adults have time constraints as they for instance, work 8-10 hours a day, have families to take care off, and have various other responsibilities. The subject must be taught in a manner that will consider time constraints and will proof to be interesting at all times. As such we break down adult numeracy resistance in a fun, but professional manner, empowering the learners to apply their knowledge from day one.
