Welcome to the Numeracy Centre

The Numeracy Centre was established in 1999 as an interfaculty unit in the Academic Development Programme with strong ties to the Department of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics.

The goals of the Numeracy Centre are:

  • To assist the university with ensuring that students and graduates are quantitatively literate in a manner that is appropriate for their course of study and intended role in the community.
  • To promote access to and foster success in quantitatively demanding programmes of study.

These goals are addressed through designing and delivering quantitative literacy courses and interventions, through providing teaching staff with professional assistance and by contributing to testing for selection and placement purposes. We believe that researching our practice will improve our ability to achieve these goals.

Our objectives contribute to the Academic Development Programme mission statements and goals.
