This article will discuss the culture of numeracy in primary schools. Mental visualisation are used to seeing cultural numeracy among primary school pupil. Through a culture of student mental picture can be seen by their existing knowledge of a particular topic. Culture numeracy in primary schools ensuring excellence at a higher level again.
