Children, adolescents and adults all need to be able to think critically about the mathematical and numerical information that surrounds them in the media, on the Internet, in schools and workplaces, and in society at large. Numeracy is the ability to solve quantitative reasoning problems and to make well-reasoned judgments derived from quantitative information in a variety of contexts.  More than being able to compute or calculate a solution to a mathematical equation, numeracy includes understanding how quantitative information is gathered, represented, and correctly interpreted using graphs, charts, tables and diagrams. Dr. Carol Gittens, points out “leading scholars and educators have consistently argued that numeracy rivals reading literacy and language fluency in its importance for learning and for life.”
