The Numeracy Framework

The Holroyd and Mary Brooksbank Schools’ Numeracy Framework was developed by teachers from both schools to assist in planning, teaching, assessing and reporting on numeracy outcomes for students in special education settings with moderate to severe intellectual and multiple disabilities. This framework may also be useful for any student working towards Early Stage 1 outcomes in the New South Wales Mathematics Syllabus.

 

The framework goals were developed using the foundation statements and Mathematics Syllabus documents to identify the knowledge, skills and understanding thatstudents require to access and participate in the curriculum in order toachieve Early Stage One syllabus outcomes. The framework provides a guide for teachers and a means of acknowledging and documenting student progress towards the achievement of very early numeracy skills and understandings.

 

The goals within each strand or sub-strand have been organised into an approximate order, although individual students may achieve the goals in a different order, dependent upon the student’s specific interests, skills and capabilities.
