Table of Objectives and Outcomes – Continuum of Learning

For students undertaking Mathematics Life Skills:

  • students are not required to complete all Life Skills outcomes
  • specific Life Skills outcomes should be selected on the basis that they meet the learning needs, strengths, goals and interests of each student
  • outcomes may be demonstrated independently or with support.
