This is one of many Harvard maths online references that I used in the Level 5 Maths ADTLLS, Meeting a learner’s needs / case study assignment (Part of Module 1: Approaches to Mathematics learning and teaching).

Here’s how I used the reference in my essay:
My role is to assist maintenance of skills, plug gaps at Entry 1 and 2 and enable lateral progression – defined as ‘developing the capacity to respond positively in a variety of situations or by learning to apply his or her skills, knowledge and understanding in a range of different contexts’ (DfES, 2002a, p22). Schuller (2002) also recognises that maintenance of numeracy skills is itself a sign of personal progress in adults with specific learning difficulties and/or poor memories.
