Numeracy

We use mathematics in every aspect of our lives. At work, in practical everyday activities at home and beyond. Mathematics is used when we shop, plan a holiday, decide on a mortgage or decorate a room.

Good numeracy is essential to all of us in our everyday lives. Decisions in life are so often based on numerical information: to make the best choices, we need to be numerate.

As parents I am sure you want to help your children in their mathematical studies. To help you with this I have documented the methods that students taking the GCSE mathematics exams from 2017 onwards will be expected to use for the basic operations of multiplication, division, subtraction and addition.

There have been many different methods taught in the past but the Government now want to move back to more traditional ways. I hope the following numeracy documents will help you to help your children.

Addition methods

Subtraction methods

Multiplication methods

Division methods

Numeracy coordinator
