Numeracy"Numeracy is a proficiency which is developed mainly in Mathematics but also in other subjects. It is more than an ability to do basic arithmetic. It involves developing confidence and competence with numbers and measures. It requires understanding of the number system, a repertoire of mathematical techniques, and an inclination and ability to solve quantitative or spatial problems in a range of contexts. Numeracy also demands understanding of the ways in which data are gathered by counting and measuring, and presented in graphs, diagrams, charts and tables."

"Is stamp sticking a thing of the past? How many teenagers have posted a letter in the last month? For those of you that have posted a letter recently did you stick the stamps on yourself or did a member of the post office staff do it for you? Nevertheless this is a good, worthwhile and useful numeracy activity."
