A definition of 'Core Numeracy Skills' for KS3
I've put this draft document up for discussion, criticism and comment. It lists what I (currently) regard as the Core/Desirable skills for Year 6 students to have when beginning to work at KS3. It's very much driven from a Secondary Maths teacher&'s perspective, and doesn&';t relate to NC Levels at all. How you would actually assess the skills listed is a rather different issue - but you'll see in the document I&'ve started some work on that too. But getting some degree of agreement on the necessary / desirable / realistically-attainable &';Core skills' is the first step.
