Numeracy refers to the ability to use and interpret numerical data in one's life and work. The National Numeracy Network (NNN) is an organization headed by a rotating team of mathematics, science, and social science scholars and educators from across the United States and based out of the Science Education Resource Center at Carleton College. The NNN aims to promote "education that integrates quantitative skills across all disciplines and at all levels." On the Teaching Resources page, college-level instructors will find a variety of resources to aide numeracy instruction. These resources, developed by college professors across the country, include materials for mathematics and statistics classrooms, as well as materials for integrating numeracy into other subjects. In Pedagogical Approaches, visitors can explore seven different models for incorporating numeracy into instruction (including Teaching with Data and Teaching Quantitative Reasoning with the News). Meanwhile, in the Resources section, instructors will find a variety of classroom activities, curriculum, and assessments.
