Thinking About Numbers

Thinking About Numbers, designed for 11-12 year olds, is the first in the series that discusses mathematical concepts. It explores mathematical concepts such as accuracy, one-to-one correspondence, sets, negative and irrational numbers as well as efficiency, justice, technology and time. The text considers the applications of these concepts to day-to-day life, investigating the meaning of justice, discipline, service, and progress. It supports the capability of making numerical statements about reality, as well as the capability to think about the social dimension of such statements.

The story follows the conversation of a group of classmates and their teacher, living in a rural village in the Philippines.

  • What is a Junior Youth Group?

    The Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Programme is a three-year programme for 12-15 year-olds which fosters a positive transition from childhood to adolescence. Junior youth engage by joining or forming a group, which often comprises 5-10 young people in a given locality, and usually meets at least weekly.

    Participants learn to identify the needs of their community and to find ways to respond to them through increasingly complex and meaningful acts of service. They study together a series of modules which can provide them with the elements of a conceptual framework that will guide their choices and actions as they mature into adults. Purposeful social, sport and artistic activities also constitute a key element of the programme. See here  for more information.

  • How to request Institute materials?
