Numeracy is an indication of your understanding of numbers. It’s all about number sense, really. And it’s the ability to communicate that sense with others. Sounds intimidating? Don’t let it freak you out. If you can count money, figure out new iPhone apps, or follow a recipe, chances are you’re on the path to numeracy. That’s really all it is. Numeracy is not necessarily about crushing it in the calculus (although that’s a really good feeling!). Less than 0.11% of the world’s population understands calculus. Not that calculus isn’t worth learning. It is essential if you’re going to be an engineer, a chemist, or a math teacher. Or maybe you just like challenging yourself.

But number sense is acquiring the knack for understanding the way numbers behave and being able to function arithmetically. Arithmetic is the screening tool of choice for employers. More importantly, you will be able to protect yourself financially and win with money.
