Learning Continuum of Numeracy (Version 8.4)

Page 3 of 3

This element involves students developing an understanding of the meaning of fractions and decimals, their representations as percentages, ratios and rates, and how they can be applied in real-life situations.

Students visualise, order and describe shapes and objects using their proportions and the relationships of percentages, ratios and rates to solve problems in authentic contexts. In developing and acting with numeracy, students:

  • interpret proportional reasoning
  • apply proportional reasoning.

Level 6

Typically by the end of Year 10, students:

Interpret proportional reasoning

illustrate and order relationships for fractions, decimals, percentages, ratios and rates

Apply proportional reasoning

solve problems involving fractions, decimals, percentages, ratios and rates
