The UK’s first ever National Numeracy Day is fast approaching. Taking place on 16th May 2018, the day will be an annual celebration of numbers and their use in everyday life. It will bring together individuals, employers, educators and influencers to improve numeracy.
From getting the best supermarket deals to managing family finances, or understanding salaries to getting a promotion at work - we all use numbers every day. Despite this, 1 in 2 working-age people have numeracy levels that we would associate with primary school children – but it is never too late to improve!
In conjunction with National Numeracy Day from 14 – 18 May Adult Education Wolverhampton have decided to organise a week of maths activities to demonstrate that maths is around us all the time.
Our students will be taking part in mini activities to highlight where money can be saved on the weekly shop, identify how much sugar is in their daily drinks, work out the best deals for phones or holidays and what it means when the sale states up to 50% off.
During this week our students will also have the opportunity to win a maths hamper filled with a calculator, pens, pencils, writing pads, folder, everything you will need when embarking on your maths learning journey.
Why not come and talk to our maths team to see how we can help you improve your maths skills. We offer Functional Skills Entry 2, Entry 3, Level 1, Level 2 and GCSE which are fully funded by the Government. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
