Essentials of Numeracy at 14
Our project with Cambridge Mathematics is looking at what kind of everyday maths skills and understanding young people should have by the age of 14.
Eight universities are using our resources as part of the Nuffield Foundation Q-Step programme to help students feel confident with the numeracy involved in their degree.
Over 20,000 people registered to check their numeracy level when we teamed up with MoneySavingExpert.com and Martin Lewis to get money savers to think about maths.
We worked with the Money Advice Service to launch the strongest evidence to date that people with good numeracy skills are more likely to manage their money well.
We are working to increase parents’ involvement and interest in their children’s maths learning and to improve their own confidence. We have been piloting the Parent Toolkit website, scrapbook and leaflets with ten pilot schools across the UK.
We have been running a project to trial different approaches to helping adults with the lowest numeracy skills, piloting Firm Foundations resources in four locations across the UK.
