In our meeting this morning we talked about how important it is to talk as positively about maths as we do about reading and writing. In our country it is often seen as socially acceptable to talk negatively about maths and declare yourself ‘no good at it’. The people behind Family Maths Toolkit are trying hard to change our language around maths and have devised a National Numeracy Challenge for adults.
How confident do you feel about maths? The National Numeracy Challenge will help you identify your strengths as well as the areas you need to develop. You then work through the resources and test yourself to see how far you’ve come. Perhaps the start of 2017 is a good time to give yourself a new goal to reach?!
If you want to know anymore about the challenge or you have taken it and are happy to share how you are getting on, please come and talk to us.
Keep checking back for lots of updates on Maths Week.
