Review of Workplace Mathematics

In August 2019, subsequent to the review of Workplace Mathematics unit standards, the following standards were published.

Unit Standard Title Domain Level Credits
5223 Use formulae and equations to solve problems in the workplace Algebra 1 1
26567 Estimate the solutions to number problems and make estimates of measurements in the workplace Number 1 2
5236 Use Pythagoras' theorem and trigonometry to solve problems related to right-angled triangles in the workplace Trigonometry 1 1

Unit standards 5223 and 26567 have been designated expiring, with a proposed last date for assessment for the current version of the standards to be 31 December 2021.

Stakeholders confirmed unit standard 5236 continues to meet identified needs and supported its revision and rollover. Unit standard 5236 was amended to reflect the new template, where Explanatory notes are renamed Guidance information, and Evidence requirements become Performance criteria. Its planned review date was extended to 31 December 2021.

For more information about this review, see the Review and revision and rollover of Mathematics unit standards change report.
