Unit Description

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to implement numeracy programs as identified by the teacher to assist students requiring additional numeracy support. The unit begins by explaining how numeracy and mathematics form part of the school curriculum. Discussion then turns to how mathematical knowledge and concepts develop and strategies for supporting numeracy. Following this background, discussion moves to specific elements of numeracy including; Correspondence, ordering and sorting, number sense and symbols, sets and subsets, addition, subtraction and multiplication, counting money, understanding and using measurement, and understanding geometry, basic algebra and fractions. The unit concludes with examples of how data related to numeracy is collected and interpreted and how numeracy development should be documented.
