Our Vision

Maths on Toast want everyone to feel positive about maths – to feel that it is something they can do, and enjoy.

Our Need

Maths is a core school subject and according to National Numeracynumeracy is linked to life chances. Poor numeracy remains endemic in the UK and government statistics suggest that 17 million adults – 49% of the working-age population of England – have the numeracy level that we expect of primary school children.

Maths anxiety is a particular problem; defined as a ‘debilitating emotional reaction to maths’ by the Nuffield Foundation. Much of the population does not understand what maths anxiety is, or how best to overcome it as it isn’t an obvious difficulty, it is hidden, and it can be affected by gender, age or culture.
