The National Numeracy Challenge is an online learning tool. It is aimed at adults but is suitable for over 14s. Please note that anyone under 16 needs the consent of a responsible adult.
It has been built in collaboration with Cambridge Maths and provides a robust assessment of your numeracy, followed by a curated dashboard of third-party learning resources. Our online certificate 'The Essentials of Numeracy' can be earned by getting a score of 80 or more, and is roughly equivalent to a level 4 at GCSE of Level 2 Functional Skills qualification.
There are number of features that make the Challenge useful and easy-to-use:
- It uses multiple choice answers
- The questions adapt to you so when they get hard it's because you're doing well
- There is no timer so you can take your time to think
- You can save your progress at any time and come back later
The Challenge was created to address low levels of numeracy in the UK and to encourage everyone to feel that they can improve their numeracy whatever their level.
