Numeracy provides for the continuing mathematical development of students who need mathematical skills to support their other subjects, including VCAL the following year and who do not intend to undertake Unit 3 and 4 studies in VCE Mathematics.
In Numeracy there is a strong emphasis on using mathematics in practical contexts relating to everyday life, recreation, work and study.
Students are encouraged to use appropriate technology in all areas of their study. These units will be especially useful for students undertaking VET studies.
The areas of study are:
- Space, Shape and Design
- Patterns and Number
- Handling Data
A Graphics calculator is NOT required for this subject.
