This article describes a teacher’s Maths lesson that focuses on numeracy in health and physical education learning area. In the lesson, the students were learning about Directed Numbers, something they often struggle with and a topic where the teacher finds it hard to explain using real life situations when using addition and subtraction. The teacher began the lesson by outlining what students were expected to achieve. The introduction also included revisiting previous work on how to convert an individual’s number of walking paces to kilometres, as well as directions for the activity that was to follow. The teacher wants to emphasise with other teachers that numeracy is not just about number and that there is great potential to address other strands of mathematics within all learning areas.
