# The aim of this unit is to enable learners to solve mathematical problems in a range of different vocational roles. They will develop skills in using number, including fractions, decimals, percentages and standard form, in statistical calculations, diagrams and sampling techniques by using discrete and continuous data and use probability to predict outcomes.
