Arithmetic in Everyday Life is a BBC schools radio series from the 1940s, covering maths for secondary school pupils.

  • A similar experimental series to 1942's Games with Numbers, intended for older pupils of 13-14.
  • Each of the first four programmes began with a five-minute diagnostic test on, in turn, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, for which listeners required pencil and paper. Teachers were instructed to use the results of these tests to identify individual pupils' weak points.
