The term ‘numeracy’ is relatively new. Numeracy has been interpreted in different ways, mostly because of the very different needs of the users of the term.

The view of numeracy that is used for these learning progressions places an emphasis on the need for learners to gain:

  • knowledge and understanding of mathematical concepts
  • the ability to use their mathematical knowledge to meet the varied demands of their personal, study and work lives.

The numeracy learning progressions are based on the belief that, in order to meet the demands of being a worker, a learner and a family and community member, adults need to use mathematics to solve many different kinds of problems.
