Numeracy Level 1
Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Roberts
A Unit Standards course providing an opportunity for students to achieve their Level 1 Numeracy Credits
USE NUMBER TO SOLVE PROBLEMS
This is a unit standard to assess aspects of numeracy. People credited with this unit standard are able to use number to solve problems. They will be able to add, subtract, multiply, and divide numbers, using their knowledge of fractions, percentages, decimals, integers, place value, number facts, and number sequencing. They will also be able to establish the appropriateness of the solution to the problem.
USE MEASUREMENT TO SOLVE PROBLEMS
This is a unit standard to assess aspects of numeracy. People credited with this unit standard are able to use measurement to solve problems. They will be able to undertake measurements such as length and capacity, calculate area and volume, and interpret location and direction, using their knowledge of the metric system, conversions, and estimation. They will also be able to establish the appropriateness of the solution to the problem.
INTERPRET STATISTICAL INFORMATION FOR A PURPOSE
This is a unit standard to assess aspects of numeracy. People credited with this unit standard are able to interpret statistical information for a purpose. They will be able to identify the features of a data set and draw reasonable conclusions based on provided material.
