Mathematics and numeracy

Browse this article:

  1. 1. Overview
  2. 2. Challenges

The challenges for numeracy and mathematics encourage learners to explore three different mathematical concepts.

Carroll diagrams - learners will have to arrange animals into categories

Venn diagrams - learners will show where some animals have similarities and demonstrate they can belong in more than one category

Bar graphs  - learners will show values given to four different animal attributes

These learning opportunities promote links with modern languages.
