In Modern Studies numeracy is essential as it helps to prove the points that you make.

You can collate your own data or you might be given data in a graph or a pie chart, either way to be able to fully analyse the data your numeracy skills need to be very sharp.

You might be asked to use percentages or fractions to help you make a decision, you might need to use numbers to support or oppose another person’s point of view or you could use numerical information to draw conclusions.

So much of Modern Studies can be about opinions, the use of numbers or statistics helps to make sure that these opinions are valid, substantiated points that are worth listening to.
