Pre‐submission checklist: Assignment 1
Did you define and describe the similari�es and differences between mathema�cs
and numeracy?
 My essay has an introduction that gives the reader a summary of what the essay is about.
 I've provided two definitions—one of numeracy and one of mathematics.
 My definitions are well­written and make sense.
 I've used the research literature and course materials to support my definitions.
 I've made sure that the research literature and course materials are directly related to my definitions and
what has been stated in them.
 I've drawn on research literature from various sources.
 After my definitions have been presented I have highlighted and explained the similarities between the
two terms—mathematics and numeracy.
 I've then highlighted and explained the differences between the two terms—mathematics and
numeracy.
Did you recognise numeracy skills used in the real world?
 I've introduced the idea that numeracy skills are used in the real world.
 I've provided a number of practical and real­world examples.
 I've linked my practical and real­world examples to some theoretical ideas (course materials or ideas
from the research literature).
Did you iden�fy everyday phenomena that can be explained using mathema�cs?
 I've identified some everyday phenomenon that can be explained using mathematics.
 I've explained why these everyday phenomena can be explained using mathematics.
 I've supported my explanations with practical examples.
 I've supported my explanations and practical examples with research literature.

Numeracy and Mathematics
People always think numeracy and mathematics are one and the same or atleast synonyms of each other. But if we look deeply, we find there is a lot of difference between the two, in their uses, techniques, applications, etc.
Numeracy:
Numeracy can be explained as the set of mathematical skills used in day to day real life. For example, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are used even by small vendors who never visited schools or idea about Mathematics. Whenever we purchase we give a sum and get changes by subtraction. Like that these small types of calculations what are basically required in everyone’s life from the time we wake up till the time we go to bed can be termed as numeracy.
Numeracy also can be explained as the confidence and skill to use numbers and mathematical approaches in all aspects of life—at work, in practical everyday activities at home, and beyond, as consumers managing our finances, as parents, helping our children learn, as patients making sense of health information, as citizens understanding the world around us.

This also uses the mathematical basic operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication and division or combination of any of these four in any pattern according to requirement in real life.
But numeracy is not complicated as Mathematics. In fact numeracy is a
anch of Mathematics. While Mathematics include numeracy in it, numeracy does not have so many concepts and theories which Mathematics have.
Square roots, Cube roots, Alge
a, Trignometry, Calculus, Real analysis, Topology, etc are included in Mathematics but not in numeracy.
Numeracy is simple, clear cut with no theories and direct applications only with rational numbers.
Mathematics:
Mathematics is defined as the science of numbers and their operations., inte
elations, combinations, generalizations and abstractions and of space configurations and their structure, measurement, transformations and generalizations.
Mathematics can also be defined as the science that studies and explains numbers, quantities, measurements, and the relations between them.
Mathematics include
Alge
a
Arithmetic
Calculus
Geometry
Trigonometry
Topology
Real and complex analysis.
