Help to use numbers and improve maths skills (Multiply)

Help to use numbers and improve maths skills, activities and learning, take a numeracy quiz

Feeling confident with numbers and maths helps everyday life.

You might be helping your children with their homework. You might need to work out measurements and cooking times to cook a meal. You might be working out your household bills for this month.

Being confident enough to use numbers can even help you in your job - or to get a new job.

Multiply is a programme of activities and learning. It helps adults to use numbers and improve maths skills.

If you are 19 or over and you don't have Maths qualification National 5 at Grade C, you can take part in these activities. We have courses for beginners and more advanced courses.

If you want to speak to someone about it, contact Sandra Brown, our Multiply Officer, by email at or give her a call 07811 054565
