STEM conference 2019: Improving numeracy skills and student employability through technology: Three pilot projects by the University of Derby and Vretta

Mathematics is a stumbling block for many. Due to various factors including mathematical anxiety peer pressure or lack of adequate support even university students often struggle to perform day-to-day mathematics tasks. In this talk we will present the results of a numeracy skills project developed at the University of Derby in collaboration with Vretta. The project aims to assess current levels and improve numeracy skills for Foundation Computing and Mathematics students at Derby. The successful completion of the numeracy module is rewarded by a Numeracy Skills Certificate expected to have a positive impact on student engagement attainment and employability.
