The one Math Skill You Need to Succeed at Work

Did you know that Americans need one Math Skill they may have missed in elementary school to succeed at Work? Researchers at the Universitry of Missouri studied 180 13-year olds and determined that a lack of number system knowledge “creates a weak foundation for later learning, which can lead to a lifetime of problems”. The article, written up in Business News Daily, determined that educators should make a concerted effort to reteach these skills to adults.

Here at the Brentwood Library, we have a wealth of resources that can help you work on your Basic Math Skills. Did you know that Learning Express has math tutorials, focused on GED Math? Or that if you get stumped, you could get live math help with Brainfuse?
