VU22424 - Investigate and use simple mathematical formulae and problem solving techniques

    Unit code: VU22424 | Study level: TAFE
    City Flinders
    Footscray Nicholson
    St Albans


    This unit describes the skills and knowledge to develop and use simple formulae to describe and represent relationships between variables in a range of real life contexts.  It involves using simple mathematical problem solving techniques to interpret and solve straight forward mathematical problems related to personal, public, work or education and training needs.  At this level the learner works independently across a range of contexts including some that are unfamiliar and/or unpredictable and which include some specialisation.  Learners at this level work independently and initiate and use support from a range of established resources.


    For Melbourne campuses

    Assessment tasks will be designed to reinforce and extend knowledge and skill competence within set and controlled parameters in accordance with each unit’s learning outcomes and performance criteria requirements, including the setting of work based practical application tasks designed to provide evidence of competence outcomes, within periodic and scheduled timelines.

    Students will be expected to demonstrate the following required skills:

    • literacy skills to read relevant texts and diagrams;
    • understand and use simple mathematical formulae, and;
    • interpret, use and calculate with a range of types of numbers.

    Required reading

    The qualified trainer and assessor will provide teaching and learning materials as required in the form of workbooks produced by the Polytechnic and/or via the Polytechnic e-learning system.
