Learning Outcomes

- LO 1 Number and operations in context
- LO 2 Functional relationships
- LO 3 Space, shape and measurement
- LO 4 Data handling

LO 1 Number and operations in context

The learner is able to use knowledge of numbers

and their relationships to investigate a range of

different contexts which include financial

aspects of personal, business and national issues

LO 2 Functional relationships

The learner is able to recognise, describe and

represent various functional relationships to

solve problems in real and simulated contexts

LO 3 Space, Shape and Measurement

The learner is able to measure using appropriate

instruments , to estimate and calculate physical

quantities and to interpret, describe and

represent properties of and relationships between

2D shapes and 3D objects in a variety of

orientations and positions.

LO 4 Data Handling

The learner is able to collect, summarise,

display and analyse data and to apply knowledge

of statistical and probability to communicate,

justify and critically interrogate findings and

draw conclusions
