Numeracy development influences student success in many areas of learning at school. The progression can be used to support students to successfully engage with the numeracy demands of the Foundation to Year 10 Australian Curriculum.
How is the numeracy progression related to the Australian Curriculum?
Numeracy skills are explicit teaching in the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics. Students need opportunities to recognise that mathematics is constantly used outside the mathematics classroom and that numerate people apply general mathematical skills in a wide range of familiar and unfamiliar situations.
The National Numeracy Learning Progression can be used at a whole school, team or individual teacher level. However, the progression provides maximum student learning benefits when used as part of a whole-school strategy that involves professional learning and collaboration between teachers.
