This free online course from the Mathematics Education Centre at Loughborough University will help you improve or revise your knowledge of mathematics. You will gain the numeracy skills needed to succeed in both employers’ numeracy tests and the workplace. It is designed to build your confidence.
Over three weeks, we will look at where numbers occur in everyday life and what numeracy means in this context. We will look at the rationale behind employers’ numeracy testing and the skills you will need to be successful.
In addition to refreshing your understanding of specific numeracy skills (such as percentages, ratios, averages and currency conversions), you will develop essential skills for interpreting numerical data and understanding statistics.
