Mathematical Literacy

Course Access: Lifetime
Course Overview

Mathematical literacy (also known as numeracy) means having the ability to problem-solve, reason and analyze information. It is the ability to use numbers to help solve real-world problems.

It is also the ability to understand the “language” of math (for example “sum” means an answer to addition, “difference” means the answer to a subtraction question).

Math literacy helps students to decipher what a question is actually asking by understanding the terminology.
