Mer om gyldighet og innføring av ny læreplan

## Main subject areas

The subject has been structured into main areas for which competence aims have been formulated. These main subject areas supplement each other and must be considered together.

The curricula qualify candidates for higher education together with either the common core programme subject Mathematics 1T-Y or 1P-Y.

Denne læreplanen er for elevar i yrkesfaglege utdanningsprogram og dei som har fagbrev, sveinebrev eller yrkeskompetanse, og som ynskjer generell studiekompetanse.

Overview of the main subject areas:

 Year Level Main subject areas 2P-Y Numbers and algebra in practice Statistics and probability Functions in practice Modelling

### Numbers and algebra in practice

The main subject area Numbers and algebra in practice focuses on developing an understanding of numbers and insight into how numbers and processing numbers are part of systems and patterns. With numbers it is possible to quantify amounts and magnitudes. Numbers include whole numbers, fractions, decimal numbers and percentages. Algebra in school generalises calculation with numbers by representing numbers with letters or other symbols. This makes it possible to describe and analyse patterns and relationships.

### Statistics and probability

Statistics covers planning, collecting, organising, analysing and presenting data. Part of data analysis is describing general characteristics of the data material. Assessing and critically considering conclusions and presentations of data are key elements in statistics. Probability focuses on expressing in numbers the likelihood that an event will occur.

### Functions in practice

A function unambiguously describes change or development of an amount that depends on another. Functions may be expressed in a number of ways, for example using formulas, tables and graphs. Functions can be useful for making mathematical models of practical relationships. The main subject area Functions in practice deals with using functions to describe and analyse situations from daily life and working life.

### Modelling

The main subject area modelling provides an overarching perspective on the subject of mathematics. Modelling is a fundamental process in the subject, where the starting point is something that actually exists. This is described in mathematical terms through a formulated model, and the results are discussed in light of the original situation.
