An Equal Start: Numeracy Education in Latin America and the Caribbean
Jul 2010
This art exhibit embodies the hope and aspiration that all students will gain a level of numeracy essential for successful participation in school, work and everyday life. Through the hands and eyes of the region's artists, we hope to bring attention to mathematics and natural science as foundational skills our children need. In today's knowledge-based societies, understanding basic numeric concepts and theories, and the capacity to structure and solve scientific questions, are more critical than ever. The mathematics and natural science skills that were once only required by few are now necessary to seek employment in today's global economy.
