Why Take Part in Number Day 2019?
We think that any event which helps to raise the profile of mathematics with our young people has to be a good thing. Numeracy is a Key Skill and as such, it holds great importance in the vast majority of schools. This is why we are promoting this event and why we think it’s a great thing for schools to get involved with. It’s a combination of worthwhile charity and vital subject/skill, plus you’ll get some free resources to use – so what’s not to like?
