Essential Application of Number Skills (EAoNS)
Teaching: Sep 2015
The Application of Number qualification encourages learners to develop their number skills to tackle a problem by:
- collecting and interpreting numbers
- carrying out calculations
- interpreting results
- presenting findings
It develops the learner’s ability to select and apply numerical, graphical and related mathematical skills in ways that are appropriate to their context. They can also be used to help learners to make connections with less-familiar contexts and develop their ability to progress to higher levels of skills. Techniques such as being able to measure and read scales, carry out specific calculations, or draw a particular type of diagram, are essential. Equally important, are the skills of interpretation (for example of information from tables, graphs or charts), selecting appropriate methods to process data, describing what findings show, and taking account of purpose and audience when presenting results.
