There is a general agreement that learning maths requires practice essential to reinforce ideas that are to be absorbed. Though we know that learning needs to be understood as the ability to use what has been learnt in situations that require them, many people report that much of the maths that they learnt is no longer accessible to them when they need to use it. For example, unlike the shopkeeper who does the sale and purchase calculations quickly and efficiently, many of us are not confident of our ability to do so, or even write down and calculate as we did in school and prefer to use a calculator.
