Course Outline

This course focuses on building the capacity, confidence and disposition to use mathematics to meet the numeracy standard for the WACE. It provides students with the knowledge, skills and understanding to solve problems across a range of contexts, including personal, community and workplace/employment.

This course provides the opportunity for students to prepare for post-school options of employment and further training.

The Mathematics Foundation course aims to develop students’ capacity, disposition and confidence to:

  • recognise and apply functional numeracy concepts and techniques in practical situations, including personal, community and workplace contexts
  • interpret and apply mathematical information embedded in various documents, texts and other media, involving contexts from everyday life and work
  • represent and communicate mathematically, consistent with the language of the context.
