Numeracy is the ability to understand and apply mathematical concepts, processes, and skills to solve problems. Students also use numeracy to make decisions in a variety of situations anywhere; not just in classrooms. Many schools and teachers design learning environments in creative ways. The integration of learning with technology has opened the door for teachers and schools to develop innovative instruction that is adapted to students’ needs and interests. Community connections also help create opportunities to engage students in authentic tasks that connect learning to the real world.
