Creating engaging mathematics learning experiences has long been a focus of TERC’s work. Numeracy, the ability to manage the quantitative demands of a situation and to solve problems in real contexts, is at the heart of much that adults need to do. The Adult Numeracy Center at TERC helps adults and young adults understand how math is present and relevant in everyday life, and how they can use this knowledge to improve their lives and communities.

Together with state and organizational partners we build capacity to offer high quality math instruction in adult learning centers, schools, community colleges, corrections education, and informal settings.

A second chance at learning should never mean a second-rate education.
