AbstractThis project aimed to identify and implement pedagogical strategies designed to
facilitate the transfer of numeracy and mathematical skills and knowledge to science
disciplines. To achieve this aim a review of the literature was conducted that yielded
numerous teaching and learning strategies for successful transfer of knowledge
across contexts with potential to use in the sciences. Six strategies were chosen by
lecturers and academic developers for field testing in science courses because they
met three main criteria: 1) they were relevant to the course context; 2) they were
practical and accessible to lecturers; and 3) they were effective in helping students
see the connections between mathematics and science.
