Numeracy has a significant impact on many of the topics we examine in Geography. Some of our uses are:

We will examine climate graphs;

Draw or interpret pie charts showing for example sources of water for homes in 3 different areas or energy usage;

Calculate totals such as populations or rainfall;

Use a map scale and ruler for measurement to interperet distance;

Examine Compound bar charts and line graphs;

Use grid references and compass directions.

Without a good understanding of core Numeracy skills it would be very difficult to experience Geography to its full potential!
