Hi, my name is Seigo Mabuchi from Japan, and I've been working in Zimbabwe as a high school
Maths teacher under a government volunteer program. I wanted to reflect on my experiences
there and I've just started my MEd course at Manchester University on Adult Education,
Literacy for Rural Social and Community Development. The course is centered on Freirian
Methods of development, literacy and numeracy education. I'm completely new on the net, and
also with Freire, but I was so excited to find someone interested in Freirian methods applied to
maths(Ann) and would certainly like to get more information on this topic. How do I go about

As Freire puts it the "world" precedes the "word", and a lot has been written about the written
word and its connection with the world, or the oral world. Much has also been written on
arithmetic and written numerals. However, I can't find much on oral and mental mathematics,
and adult numeracy in a third world development context. How can I get more material on these
topics? If there's anyone interested out there, I'd appreciate any information.
