Adding Value: Improving Numerical Skills

The decline in numerical competency amongst undergraduates is of major concern. Every Student Counts: Promoting Numeracy and Enhancing Employability is an NTFS-funded project (2007-2010) which has investigated the curricula requirements and support necessary to enhance students' numerical skills within undergraduate programmes. Details of the history strand of the project are presented here. They provide guidance on how history students might develop and practise their numeracy skills in order to facilitate their studies, enhance their employability prospects and cope in their everyday lives.
