Numeracy skills framework
The Numeracy Skills Framework provides teachers with the numeracy skills required by students at each stage of development across all syllabuses. The framework supports the successful integration of numeracy across the curriculum.
The range of numeracy skills from preschool to year 10 allows teachers to identify stage skills and assess students’ prior learning. Strategies for the successful integration of numeracy within each key learning area have also been included. This information is essential for devising lessons with appropriate differentiation strategies.
On the Numeracy skills framework website, you will find:
- illustrations of practice for embedding numeracy in KLAs
- a process to get started with planning numeracy
- mathematics diagnostic tasks
- applications of numeracy across the curriculum
- research based strategies on improving numeracy
- Newman's error analysis
The Numeracy across the curriculum course provides a guided process to integrating the explicit teaching of numeracy skills with curriculum content to meet the learning needs of all students across the key learning areas. It will specifically address learning in the context of NSW K–10 syllabuses.
