What is Math Literacy?

Math literacy (also referred to as numeracy) refers to the ability to understand and apply math concepts in real-life situations.

It is more than just calculating numbers and adding and subtracting; it involves reasoning, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills.

Math literacy empowers individuals to make informed decisions in daily life. Examples of how we might use numeracy in everyday life includes creating and managing a budget, measuring ingredients while cooking a recipe, and understanding distances to calculate travel time.
