What Might 'Numeracy' Mean in the Twenty-First Century in Canada? (2000)

Backround Paper for the National Roundtable on Literacy, A

This is a background paper, prepared for the National Roundtable on Numeracy. It is one of two especially commissioned for the Roundtable to help prepare participants for active participation in the meeting. The first paper mainly addresses the "Current Challenges" component of the meeting's theme by examining numeracy in contemporary Canadian society from something of a historical perspective: "Where are we, and how have we gotten here?" This paper is intended to be complementary to the first and to concern itself largely with "Future Possibilities." Its orientation is "Where are we and where do we want to go?"
