TIAN Bundles

The TIAN Bundles are resources for ABE math teachers. Each bundle is designed to offer content so that teachers will continue to explore math together with their peers, have examples of activities that can be used with students, and read and reflect on research on numeracy instruction.

Adult Numeracy Network

The Adult Numeracy Network (ANN), formerly the Adult Numeracy Practitioners Network, was formed by adult education practitioners at the first national Conference on Adult Mathematical Literacy held in Arlington, Virginia, in March 1994. Members joined with researchers, program administrators, government officials and others to discuss the status of adult numeracy education and to determine future directions. The conference was co-sponsored by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), the National Center on Adult Literacy (NCAL), and the Office of Vocational and Adult Education of the U.S. Department of Education (now the Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education). Forming the Network was a voluntary commitment by the practitioners to continue the work of the conference at the grassroots level where teachers and students meet. The Network adopted a constitution and by-laws in April 1995, at its first Annual meeting in Cambridge, MA. In April 1998, the ANN became an affiliate-at-large of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

The Adult Numeracy Network publishes a tri-annual newsletter called The Math Practitioner.
