Application of number - Essential Skills Wales
The aim of the Application of Number standards is to encourage candidates to develop and demonstrate their skills in using number to tackle a task, activity or problem by collecting and interpreting information involving numbers, carrying out calculations, interpreting results and presenting findings.
The standards are essentially concerned with developing and recognising candidates' ability to select and apply numerical, graphical and related mathematical skills in ways that are appropriate to their particular context. However, they can also be used to help individuals make connections with less familiar contexts and develop their ability to progress to higher levels of competence.
