What you get
This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to carry out basic routine workplace calculations.
It includes carrying out required mathematical operations; preparing basic estimates of mass, size and volume; and interpreting basic graphical representations of mathematical information. It also includes calculations for routine industry-related tasks using manual and electronic processes.
It specifically includes the skills and knowledge needed to estimate/calculate manual load shifting requirements. Calculations are carried out as an integral part of routine work in the context of the workplace concerned.
Work is performed under some supervision, generally within a team environment.
Work involves the application of established mathematical principles and techniques in day-to-day work activities.
No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
By the end of this training course, participants will:
|1. Carry out calculations||
1.1 Items are counted singly and in batches and sorted numerically, as required in workplace tasks.
1.2 Calculations needed to complete work tasks are performed using the four basic processes of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
1.3 Calculations involving fractions, percentages and mixed numbers, and using the four basic processes, are performed as required to complete workplace tasks.
1.4 The functions of a calculator, numeric keypad or computer are used to perform workplace tasks.
1.5 Numerical information is self-checked and corrected for accuracy.
|2. Prepare estimates||
2.1 Quantities of materials and resources required to complete a work task are estimated.
2.2 The time needed to complete a work activity is estimated.
2.3 Accurate estimates for work completion are made.
|3. Interpret graphical representations of mathematical information||
3.1 Information represented in symbols, diagrams and pictorial representations is recognised
