Take the National Numeracy Challenge

The National Numeracy Challenge is a free and easy-to-use website you can use to build  your confidence with numbers. You can use it to check and brush up just the skills you need. And we've just released a new suite of resources focused on money management, helping children and numeracy for work. 

Why not give it a go? 

What is Number Confidence Week?

It's an opportunity to deal with the powerful and largely unseen issue of low confidence with numbers. Low confidence with numbers can hold us back in our own lives, and can even affect how our children feel about maths.

That's why National Numeracy and our partners are raising awareness of this issue this week in November. Join in by using the resources on this page or starting the National Numeracy Challenge.
