In his Unionlearn feature, ULR Andy Taylor talks about the simple truth regarding everyday maths and its importance in our lives. Even though maths at school might have come across to us as unfriendly, basic maths skills like percentages and fractions are still an integral part of our daily lives and Andy highlights the importance of developing our maths knowledge.
Maths have an equally significant place in our professional lives. Andy comments that "functional Skills are a great way to review and refresh your maths ability and to give you confidence to work with figures are a standard that is required for various courses and qualifications."
