Basic skills are integrated into the competence aims for this course in areas where they contribute to the development of and are part of the subject competence. In the Mathematics X programme subject, basic skills are understood as follows:
Being able to express oneself orally and in writing in Mathematics X involves the ability to formulate logical arguments, explain a mode of thought and articulate findings, concepts and hypotheses. It means posing questions, participating in talks and discussions of mathematical situations and problems, and presenting a reasoned argument for one’s own proposed solution. It also means being able to formulate a mathematical proof in longhand with correct mathematical notation and logically valid conclusions, as well as writing mathematical symbols and expressions and setting up or drawing tables, diagrams, graphs and geometrical figures.
Being able to read in Mathematics X sciences involves the ability to extract relevant mathematical information out of written text. It means understanding mathematical symbols and logical reasoning. It also means being able to understand and interpret organized visual information such as tables, diagrams, graphs and geometric figures.
Numeracy is the most basic skill in mathematics. In Mathematics X this involves having confidence in applying various arithmetical operations without the use of digital tools. It also means making appropriate estimates and assessing the likelihood of a solution.
Being able to use digital tools in Mathematics X involves using digital tools for comprehensive computations and visualization. This means obtaining, processing and presenting mathematical information in electronic form. It also means evaluating the suitability, potential and limitations of the digital tool.
