40% of Irish have difficulty with numeracy Tuesday, September 07, 2010


Today the Irish Times reported the findings of a study conducted by Millward Brown Lansdowne for the National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA) on the maths knowledge of Irish adults.

We have created a worksheet which features the six questions asked, plus a slide show you can use in the classroom to test students knowledge of the same problems. Great for senior primary school or second level.
