|Unit Standard ID:||9015|
|Unit Standard Title:||Apply knowledge of statistics and probability to critically interrogate and effectively communicate findings on life related problems|
|Module:||Project Management Fundamentals|
|Qualification:||National Certificate: Generic Management|
|Programme:||Certificate in General Management & Leadership|
|Purpose:||This Unit Standard is designed to provide credits towards the mathematical literacy requirement of the NQF at Level 4. The essential purposes of the mathematical literacy requirement are that, as the learner progresses with confidence through the levels, the learner will grow in: |
A confident, insightful use of mathematics in the management of the needs of everyday living to become a self-managing person.
An understanding of mathematical applications that provides insight into the learner`s present and future occupational experiences `and so develop into a contributing worker.
The ability to voice a critical sensitivity to the role of mathematics in a democratic society and so become a participating citizen.
People credited with this unit standard are able to:
1.) Critique and use techniques for collecting, organising and representing data.
2.) Use theoretical and experimental probability to develop models, make predictions and study problems.
3.) Critically interrogate and use probability and statistical models in problem solving and decision making in real-world situations.
|Entry Requirements:||The credit value is based on the assumption that people starting to learn towards this unit standard al-e competent in Mathematical Literacy and Communications at NQF level 3.|
|Course Objectives:||1.) Identify and solve problems using critical and creative thinking: |
Solve a variety of problems based on data, statistics and probability.
2.) Collect, analyse, organise and critically evaluate information:
Gather, organise, evaluate and critically interpret data and statistics to make sense of situations.
3.) Communicate effectively:
Use everyday language and mathematical language to represent data, statistics and probability and effectively communicate or critique conclusions.
4.) Use mathematics:
Use mathematics to critically analyse, describe and represent situations and to solve problems related to the life or work situations of the adult with increasing responsibilities. <
