Adults Mathematics and Work: from Research into Practice

More than 70 of the TU Dublin staff, friends and family gathered in the Royal Irish Academy, Dawson Street,  to celebrate the launch of a book co-authored by John Keogh (Science Department, Mathematics Lecturer), Terry Maguire (Director of the National Forum and former Head of Lifelong learning ITT Dublin) and John O’Donoghue University of Limerick.  

Entitled “Adults Mathematics and Work: from Research into Practice”, the book emerged from doctoral research  funded by the Government of Ireland took place in the Department of Humanities. It tackles and explains the curious relationship that many adults have regarding their abilities with mathematics and provides a set of tools to enable the reluctant learner to overcome their mistaken self-perception as a non-maths person, and  to recognise their frequent use of mathematics  as a platform for their future learning. 

The book was welcomed by professor David Fitzpatrick as an early output of the Technological University Dublin that exemplifies the  ways in which TU Dublin engages with business, Industry and innovation.
