Have a look at this link to the National Numeracy Challenge :
Following on from the post earlier in the week, this is an online challenge to show your own numeracy skills. I have had a very fun morning doing the challenge, although certain bits were scarily difficult!!
However this could be a very interesting activity to do with older children as well as yourselves, and shows how much we need numeracy to go about our daily lives. How about challenging parents too?!!
This website is a fascinating read in light of the findings of the Scottish Survey of Numeracy and Literacy, and could be a valuable resource in challenging both children’s and adults’ attitudes towards numeracy.
Let me know your thoughts – or results if you feel like sharing!!
