Adult numeracy - research report comissioned by BBC Learning and conducted by NRDC

Posted by Zoltan Varkonyi

This report provides an overview of existing research on adult numeracy, with a strong focus on the United Kingdom but also including other countries. It was produced as part of NRDC's work in support of Skills for Life. 

The emphasis is on poor numeracy: its antecedents and effects, teaching and learning to overcome it, and the potential use of ICT and mobile technologies in that pursuit.
