Stage 2 | Subject outline | Capabilities | Numeracy


Through Geography, students develop their numeracy capability as they investigate location, distance, and spatial distributions, and use measurement tools, scale, and units appropriate to fieldwork and mapping tasks. They use graphs, diagrams, and statistics related to geographical locations, events, features, and other phenomena. Students display data, using appropriate geographical conventions such as transects, crosssections, population pyramids, and thematic maps. In constructing and interpreting maps, students work with numerical concepts of grids, scale, distance, area, and projections. They interpret and extrapolate from statistical information to predict trends and outcomes from data.
