Field Numeracy - Uno How's Farm Visits

 Agricultural Numeracy for Food Security and Nutrition    

Online Learning - Agricultural Numeracy for Food Security and Nutrition

Following the success of a grant application for further funding from TOPS to develop the Uno How Farm Series, Modules 4 and 5 were developed, and Modules 1, 2 and 3 were produced in an animated format which can be used to support teaching and learning of the modules.

AgriTechTalk International CIC began the Uno How Farm Visit Series in 2014, with funding from TOPS, to develop online learning courses in functional numeracy for professionals working in food and nutrition security.

Five modules have since been completed. These are cartoon based farm visits of a fictional extension agent called "Uno How" to two farmers, "Tad" and "Mim".

The cartoons link to explanations, simple calculations and exercises, as well as lots of practical numeracy tips.

The modules can be followed online or, if preferred, can be downloaded as pdfs for printing.

Module 1 (Visits 1- 4) - Calculating the area of your farm.
Module 2 (Visits 5 - 8) - Estimating seed inputs, fertiliser and spray requirements.
Module 3 (Visits 9 - 12) - Estimating crop production and storage requirements.
Module 4 (Visits 13 - 16) - Using Farm Products.
Module 5 (Visits 17 - 20) - Farming as a business.
