Introduction
The focus of the study is to describe the importance of math throughout life and the
process of learning from early childhood to later part of life. The resources are use to identify the
process of learning and teaching where the environment is considered an important part. The real
world application of math is also highlight in the folio.
Mathematics is a discipline included in science that deals with quantity, arrangement and
the logic of shapes. It is applicable to everything that is around us in everyday life, from
calculation to the geographic shapes around us that can be study by mathematics. Mathematics
makes it easier for a person to understand and evaluate the concepts such as velocity, speed,
light, heat, valences and much more (Siemon et al., 2015). On the other hand, numeracy refers to
the ability to use mathematical skills in our everyday life. By referring one person as numerate
means that they have confidence and skills for using the numbers and mathematical approach in
their everyday life that has nothing to do with their professional expertise. It means that the
person is able to reason with mathematical concepts, use these concepts in a range of contexts,
and solve a variety of problems. Numeracy seems to reflect the way in which children approach
their mathematics, valuing the confidence in and understanding of mathematics (Ares & Evans,
2014).
These two can be distinguish from one another on various grounds. Numeracy and
mathematics are overlapping, but are to separate concept. Mathematics is a much broader
concept than numeracy. Numeracy uses mathematics in some of the contexts to deal with
situations. Hence, it can be point out that mathematics is a scientific discipline whereas
numeracy is merely the application of the knowledge of mathematics in the field. An example
