We all use maths every day. We use it to make decisions about looking after our money, planning journeys, preparing a meal and choosing the best deals in supermarkets.

The Essentials of Numeracy

To help you improve your numeracy and boost your confidence, we’ve developed the Challenge Online. This interactive website is free to use at home, at work or on the move. You can assess your current level of numeracy – completely anonymously - and then begin an online journey to getting the Essentials of Numeracy.

Get started


Star Dash Studios

Our smartphone app for young adults aims to improve numeracy while providing a fun gaming experience. Primarily aimed at 16-25 year olds, players take on the role of a runner in the movie business, encountering other members of the team and finishing maths-based tasks to progress to the next level.
