National Numeracy Day Wednesday 19th May 2021
PACE and Numeracy
We use numeracy every day in all areas of our lives.
Some examples of the ways we use numeracy every day include:
- Working out how many minutes until our bus arrives
- Following a recipe and weighing out ingredients
- Checking we've paid the correct amount and received the right change when shopping
- Setting and keeping to a budget
- Measuring medicine doses
Poor numeracy can affect people’s confidence and self-esteem. Our learners access the adult numeracy curriculum in order to improve their numeracy and in turn this contributes to supporting growth in their personal and social confidence.
