How did the classroom instruction in the video exemplify instruction for numeracy as defined in the last paragraph of the Schmitt article, which reads: “Numeracy is about making meaning of mathematics, at whatever level of mathematical skill, and mathematics is a tool to be used in a variety of applications in both education and life. “Numeracy is not less than mathematics, but more” (Johnston & Tout, 1995)”?
