Maths / Numeracy

ALNS runs relaxed, interesting and friendly numeracy classes.  Numeracy involves the language of maths as well as  measuring or calculating.  Developing these skills doesn’t need to be boring or overwhelming. 

 

There’s often more than one way to do maths.  Our first step into your numeracy journey involves understanding what and how you want to learn.  Sessions can involve maths from “A to Z” or a more specific focus.  We meet to discuss your objectives and how you’d like to approach things first.
