Abstract in Portuguese
Literacia matemática é a capacidade de identificar, compreender e utilizar noções quantitativas e matemáticas na vida prática. A falta dessa habilidade entre jornalistas é responsável por erros em reportagens e também pela limitação do trabalho de apuração. Esta pesquisa investiga a ocorrência e as formas como informações quantitativas são inseridas em notícias, e discute seu papel na a formação de estudantes de jornalismo, enfatizando a necessidade de pensar números em contexto e de compreender os conhecimentos matemáticos como uma ferramenta indispensável para o exercício da cidadania. Ao campo da pesquisa em Educação Matemática, o trabalho traz uma perspectiva voltada ao ensino de matemática em nível superior para carreiras não-afins.

Abstract in English
Mathematical literacy is the ability to identify, understand and apply quantitative and mathematical knowledge in the everyday life. When lacking this ability, journalists not only make mistakes in reporting, but also become limited in their investigations. The present study researches how often and in which ways quantitative information is used in the news, and argues about its place in the journalism school, emphasizing the importance of thinking about numbers in their context and of understanding mathematical knowledge as an imperative tool for citizenship. To the Mathematics Education research field, this work provides a perspective on teaching Mathematics in higher education for careers outside of STEM.
