December 8, 2017 Leave a comment

Alan Smith reported amazing statistics of adult numeracy:

2011 England Survey: **49 of 100** adults lacked of numeracy Level 1 skills (fractions, percentage, and decimals). *The figure is only shocking for 51% of population.*

OECD reported (PIAACX2012) that **forty percent** of USA young people aged 16-19 were below Level 2.

This is statistics. Statistics is a part of mathematics and it is about **us** as a group.

There are two categories of people who can and who cannot do numbers.
