Numeracy activities

These activities are examples of the type of activities or problems that would be found embedded within numeracy- or applied maths-type courses of learning.  They must be part of a broader course of learning, and meaningfully support the achievement of the learning outcomes of that course, in order for any evidence they generate to be considered naturally occurring – and therefore valid for the Numeracy unit standards.

The tutor/teacher can adapt and/or extend the activities to suit the needs and interests of the learners, and to best fit within the course of learning.
