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.
