Picturing the Maths
This activity helps learners become aware of the importance of maths in their vocational area and use mathematical language to describe aspects of a job role. Learners may need support to use appropriate mathematical vocabulary and may require a list or glossary of mathematical terms relevant to their vocational area. Learners may view some mathematical activities in the workplace as common sense such as a hairdresser handling bookings and schedule appointments without being fully aware that this has mathematical aspects such as time management, estimating how long various procedures will take, reading and writing using 24hr clock and sequencing.
