Today (May 15th) is National Numeracy Day, which is all about recognising the important part numbers play in everyday life, helping people to sharpen their number skills and build their confidence.
Being better with numbers isn’t a special talent, it’s something we can all learn at any stage in our lives.
At the WEA we embed numeracy wherever we can, so whether you are sewing or baking, getting fit or getting online you’ll be improving your maths skills one measurement at a time. But for those of you who like a more focused approach to numbers we offer Maths courses too.
You will need to do an initial assessment before starting an English, Maths or ESOL course with us. InIitial assessments are days dedicated to quick and informal assessments that make sure you start a course that is just right for you. You can use the course search box at the bottom of the page to see all courses in your area: just pop in your postcode.
Do you like number puzzles? You can download a free Sudoku puzzle here.
The WEA is an official champion of National Numeracy Day. Make this National Numeracy Day count for you by taking the National Numeracy Challenge today at numeracyday.com (follow the link for more details).
