									      Increase Your Literacy and Numeracy Skills and Change Yourself Forever




 The outcome of poor numeracy on people's lives is quite often less apparent when compared to
poor literacy. Nevertheless, there’s substantial evidence that low numeracy abilities is often the
reason for reduced opportunities in life. This may react negatively on you, the family and on the
public as a whole.


 Adult Literacy and Numeracy in the United Kingdom is very much a problem, resulting in many
not being able to manage their own cash or help their children with homework.


Numeracy is a skill that can be found primarily in maths but also in other subjects. Numeracy is a
lot more than an ability to do straightforward sums as it calls for an awareness of everything
numbers and a capacity to work out quantitative or spatial exercises in a number of contexts.
Numeracy also demands that you’re aware of the ways that data is collected and the way to
present it in graphs, tables and charts.


It even needs you to be great at problem solving, to be able to recognize and explain the solutions,
the art of decision making and to interpret data. Information technology brings about much more
data than previously and places a greater emphasis on developing numeracy abilities.


Literacy and Maths games are specifically created to build up our English and Maths abilities as
per the National Curriculum. Literacy and numeracy books and games take in lots of key
curriculum areas for those wanting assistance with literacy and spelling and Maths at key stage 1
and 2. They're also useful for people with special needs like dyslexia or for English spelling when
studying or teaching English as a foreign language.


Being able to read means it is possible to bring about constructive changes to your life. You’ve the
ability to see yourself in a different way and also to relate to other people more ably. In years gone
by, kids used to read in the home for pleasure, speak with their mother and father or sisters and
brothers as long as it meant having some kind of interaction with other people. Today they sit and
watch the tele and movies or play video games that do not require any interaction with others at
all. Talking and interacting in some way with other people is vital for both children and adults to
achieve their full potential in literacy.


Anyone who finds it difficult to use numbers can feel a little embarrassed about it and this can
have an effect on their confidence because they’re unable to assist their kids with their maths
homework and are, usually, reluctant to consider a rather more challenging profession.


Clearly the origins of numeracy are best laid early. Regrettably, some adults may have slipped
through the cracks and could now find themselves experiencing problems with standard everyday
duties. In England alone there are around 17 million adults with poor numeracy skills and the
number is increasing.


Through literacy and numeracy books it's possible for everyone experiencing difficulties to expand
these skills and this may inevitably improve your choices in life as well as increase your
employment potential.


It's heartbreaking to hear that just 1 in three kids own a book and that 1 in four depart primary
school having attained an unsatisfactory literacy level! Real books are a reward bestowed on us
by angels and are vital to real accomplishment in Literacy and Numeracy.
