Unit code: VU22370 | Study level: TAFE
City Campus

This unit describes the skills and knowledge to enable learners to develop the basic skills and confidence to perform very simple and highly familiar numeracy tasks involving the recognition and comparison of simple and familiar measurements which are part of the learners’ normal routines. This would typically relate to activities such as shopping, cooking, work related measures and telling the time. Learners will mainly communicate these mathematical ideas using spoken rather than written responses. Learners at this level may request support and begin to develop their own support resources.
