Studying basic maths can help develop those all-important analytical skills needed for problem-solving across a wide range of situations – from purchasing a house, understanding mortgage rates and navigating percentages.
As well as helping in everyday life, good numeracy skills could unlock job opportunities and lead to higher wages, or prepare you for further study.
