Numeracy and mathematical skills are embedded in the Experiences and Outcomes and cannot be taught in isolation. These skills can be developed through careful planning of learning activities, questions and a range of assessments. These should encourage learners to think about the concepts, going beyond the recall of knowledge and encouraging them to explain their thinking.

As learners progress through Curriculum for Excellence levels, they should demonstrate increasing sophistication and independence in their ability to demonstrate, link, transfer and apply the following skills in a range of increasingly more challenging contexts:

  • interpret questions;                                                          

  • select and communicate processes and solutions;

  • justify choice of strategy used;

  • link mathematical concepts;

  • use mathematical vocabulary and notation;

  • use mental agility;

  • reason algebraically; and

  • determine the reasonableness of a solution. 


The National Numeracy Progression Framework is designed to cover…


  • Estimating and rounding

  • Number and number processes

  • Fractions, decimal fractions and percentages

  • Money

  • Time 

  • Measurement

  • Data and analysis

  • Ideas of chance and uncertainty.
