Numeracy K-6 (in English)

The study of English provides opportunities for students to develop their skills in numeracy by identifying and using numerical, measurement, spatial, graphical and statistical concepts and skills. Students strengthen their understanding of how issues and points of view that are based on data are represented in texts by developing their skills to identify, analyse and synthesise numerical information as they respond to the reliability of sources and methodology.
