Most people think of literacy as the ability to read and write in your native language. However, math literacy is a growing concern in the twenty first century. Educator Robert Moses founded the Algebra Project on the belief that math literacy is necessary for success in the twenty first century, and those who practice math illiteracy, or innumeracy, are only going to struggle in the real world. There is such a strong emphasis in our society on being able to read and write, but math is often dismissed as a subject that people either do or do not understand. While innumeracy is a problem to a certain degree in all different parts of the United States, it seems to be a more vast problem in urban areas. Looking at the city of Trenton, we found innumeracy to be a major problem with no immediate solution. # Link in context
