Numeracy and Mathematics Stream. CGEA Information Sheet No. 5.
Adult, Community, and Further Education Board, Melbourne (Australia).
This information sheet describes Numeracy and Mathematics, one of four streams or subject areas offered in the Certificates in General Education for Adults (CGEA) in Australia. The learning outcomes are organized into four different categories or domains according to different purposes and functions of using mathematics: numeracy for practical purposes, for interpreting society, for personal organization, and for knowledge. In most cases, these functions or purposes (domains) are divided into more than one learning outcome at each level. A diagram illustrates the learning outcomes of the stream and direct and possible links among the four levels. The assessment criteria give the detailed criteria for satisfying the learning outcome. The assessment criteria are grouped under three categories: mathematical knowledge and techniques, mathematical language, and interpretation. Information is provided on reading the learning outcome details, including assessment criteria, performance range, conditions of assessment, and assessment tasks. (YLB)
