This unit describes the skills and knowledge to develop numeracy skills related to locating and recognising a range of whole numbers, decimals, routine fractions and percentages which are part of numerical information partly embedded in routine texts. Learners can then use those numbers to perform simple multi-step calculations which are part of their’ familiar personal, public, work or education and training lives. Learners will communicate these mathematical ideas using a combination of written and spoken responses. Learners at this level, work independently and continue to build and use their own familiar support resources.
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.
