"Numeracy involves using mathematical ideas efficiently to make sense of the world." ― NSW Department of Education and Communities

While it necessarily involves understanding some mathematical ideas, notations and techniques, (numeracy) also involves drawing on knowledge of particular contexts and circumstances in deciding when to use mathematics, choosing the mathematics to use and critically evaluating its use. Each individual’s interpretation of the world draws on understandings of number, measurement, probability, data and spatial sense combined with critical mathematical thinking.
