Learning Math also Improves Quality of Life

Teacher Insights

According to a study published in the journal PLOS ONE, learning math does more than just help students in the class, rather provides their life with a new quality. The researchers found that an intervention in mathematics helped students improve their math literacy and to develop sufficient ‘numeracy’, which is vital for success in the course and in life.

 

“Improved math skills helped these students outside of class,” said Ellen Peters, lead author of the study and professor of psychology at The Ohio State University. “This study showed that knowing how to use numbers is important for everyone, even if you think you’re not using math. Numeracy  helps people in their everyday lives.”

 


The numeracy skills are found especially to help students make better health and financial decisions.
