Examples of when to use numeracy skills in digital or creative industries could include:
Examples of situations which call for a range of different numeracy skills could include:
Using computers and other technology to record information and use to solve problems and assess trends/patterns or make predictions.
Outline how numeracy skills can be used to find solutions in different digital or creative industry related situations.
Be able to select appropriate mathematical approach to solving problems in the digital or creative industries.
Possible mathematical methods identified could include:
Identify possible mathematical methods that could be used to solve specific problems in the digital or creative industries.
Select the most appropriate mathematical approach for each situation.
Be able to apply appropriate numeracy skills in digital or creative industries related context.
Appropriate numeracy skills will include applying the appropriate methods as detailed in learning outcome 2 (above) in addition to:
Collect and collate supporting information needed to apply numeracy skills in a digital or creative industries related situation.
Apply different mathematical approaches, using the appropriate numeracy skills, to problems or situations in a digital or creative industries related context.
Use appropriate checking procedures and evaluate their effectiveness at each stage.
Be able to interpret and communicate results in situations where they have applied numeracy skills in a digital or creative industries related context.
Analysing findings could include:
Interpreting and identifying solutions can be shown through prepared feedback to a senior team member or by the use of programmes such as Excel to apply mathematical ideas in practical situations and being able to manipulate figures.
Mathematical justifications could be shown through report writing and may include:
Analyse findings from the mathematical approaches applied to in a digital or creative industries related context Identify solutions to public services related problems or tasks based on their findings.
Use mathematical justifications to explain their conclusions or recommendations to others.
