Author(s) Wedege, Tine

English abstract
Vocational Mathematics is an analysis and development project about numbers and vocational mathematics in work and in Adult Vocational training. We have posed three main questions in this project: • What skills and understandings in calculation and mathematics are needed in the semi-skilled jobs compared with the requirements in the AVT-teaching? • What are the difficulties in numbers and mathematics that the AVT-students encounter, why do the problems arise, and what are the implications for those returning to vocational education. • How can the mathematics-containing AVT-teaching be arranged such that it supports the students and provides them with opportunities to exploit their potentials?
