Functional Skills - Mathematics.

Functional Skills - Mathematics.

This document sets out the purpose, learning aims and outcomes, and subject content
for Functional Skills mathematics at Entry Level, Level 1 and Level 2.
A key aim for Functional Skills mathematics specifications is that they enable the
student to gain confidence and fluency in, and a positive attitude towards, mathematics.
Students will convey their confidence in using mathematics when they can demonstrate
a sound grasp of mathematical knowledge and skills (see purpose section) and apply it
to solve mathematical problems.
Awarding Organisation specifications should encourage teachers to emphasise the
interconnectedness of the three different areas of mathematics set out in this content,
namely: number and the number system; common measures, shape and space; and
information and data. At each level (Entry Levels 1-3, Level 1 and Level 2) the level of
difficulty of mathematical problem solving increases as does the number and extent of
connections made within the content.
