What you need to know           

In interpreting information, YOU NEED TO KNOW HOW TO:

  • read and understand straightforward tables, charts, diagrams and line graphs;
  • read and understand numbers used in different ways (e.g. large numbers in figures or words, simple fractions, decimals, percentages);
  • measure in everyday units (e.g. minutes, millimetres, litres, grams, degrees) by reading scales on familiar measuring equipment (e.g. watch, tape measure, measuring jug, weighing scales, thermometer);
  • make accurate observations (e.g. count number of people or items);
  • identify suitable calculations to get the results you need for the task.

In carrying out calculations, YOU NEED TO KNOW HOW TO:

  • work to the level of accuracy you have been told to use (e.g. round to the nearest whole unit, nearest 10, two decimal places); 
  • add, subtract, multiply and divide with whole numbers and simple decimals (e.g. two decimal places);
  • understand and find simple fractions and percentages (e.g. or £15 is £10, 75% of 400 is 300);
  • work out areas of rectangular spaces (e.g. floor area);
  • work out volumes of rectangular-based shapes (e.g. a box);
  • use straightforward scales on diagrams (e.g. 10 mm to 1 m);
  • use ratios and proportion (e.g. three parts to one part);
  • find the average (mean) of up to 10 items (e.g. temperatures, prices, time);
  • find the range for up to 10 items (e.g. temperature range from highest to lowest was 16°C);
  • check calculations using different methods (e.g. estimate to reject impossible answers, check a subtraction by ‘adding back’) to make sure they make sense.

In interpreting results and presenting your findings, YOU NEED TO KNOW HOW TO:

  • use suitable ways of presenting information, including a chart and diagram;
  • use the correct units (e.g. for area, volume, weight, time, temperature);
  • label your work correctly (e.g. use a title or key);
  • describe how the results of your calculations meet the purpose of your task.

What you must do: 
You must:

N.1 Interpret straightforward information from two different sources. At least one source should be a table, chart, diagram or line graph.

Evidence must show you can:

  • obtain the information you need to meet the purpose of your task; and
  • identify suitable calculations to get the results you need.


N.2 Carry out straightforward calculations to do with:

  1. amounts and sizes;
  2. scales and proportion;
  3. handling statistics.

Evidence must show you can:

  • carry out calculations to the levels of accuracy you have been given; and
  • check your results make sense.

N.3 Interpret the results of your calculations and present your findings. You must use one chart and one diagram.

Evidence must show you can:

  • choose suitable ways to present your findings;
  • present your findings clearly; and
  • describe how the results of your calculations meet the purpose of your task.
