How can I encourage greater participation of learners in maths activities whilst teaching vocational subjects?

This research therefore is intended to develop strategies to engage students on this study programme to increase their confidence to learn maths by effectively embedding maths activities into the teaching of the vocational subject.  It is also intended to measure the impact of this work on their overall attitude to learning maths as a broader subject and whether it is possible to move the students away from having a fixed mind-set in relation to this subject area.
