English term or phrase: numeracy
Definition from Wikipedia:
Numeracy is the ability to reason with numbers and other mathematical concepts. To be numerically literate, a person has to be comfortable with logic and reasoning. Some of the areas that are involved in numeracy include: basic numbers, orders of magnitude, geometry, algebra, probability and statistics.

Example sentence(s):
  • Numeracy is used in science class when students interpret a graph, in woodwork when they confidently measure a piece of wood, or in cooking when a student halves a recipe without being given specific instructions on what to do. The State of Queensland
  • What appears in most definitions of numeracy from the 1980s and 1990s is the use of mathematics in real-life situations and the idea that it can be used in a goal-oriented way, depending on the needs and interests of the individual in a given context (home, community, workplace). NCSALL
  • Punctuality, literacy, numeracy and enthusiasm are the four key requirements of any young person seeking their first job. Guardian News and Media Limited
