Competency: C. Understand and Use Numbers

### C4. Manage data

C4.3 Find, integrate and analyze data; identify trends in data

Competency C: **Understand and Use Numbers**

Task Group C4: **Manage data**

Level:** 3**

At this level, learners: **Find, integrate, and analyze data; identify trends in data**

**Performance Descriptors**

The learner:

- Calculates using numbers expressed as whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percentages, and integers
- Manages unfamiliar elements (e.g. context, content) to complete tasks
- Makes estimates involving many factors where precision is required
- Begins to recognize bias in data and in displays, such as graphs
- Calculates and interprets summary measures (e.g. mean, median, mode)
- Calculates percent change
- Applies statistics (e.g. population change, growth rates)
- Chooses and performs required operations; makes inferences to identify required operations
- Selects appropriate steps to solutions from among options
- Interprets, represents, and converts values using whole numbers, decimals, percentages, ratios, and fractions
- Identifies a variety of ways to complete tasks
- Finds, integrates, and analyses data
- Organizes and represents numerical information (e.g. tables, graphs)
- Makes predictions using data; identifies trends
- Uses strategies to check accuracy (e.g. estimating, using a calculator, repeating a calculation, using the reverse operation)

**Task Descriptors**

- Scope of task may not be clearly defined
- May include unfamiliar elements (e.g. context, content)
- May require two or more operations; operations must be inferred
- Requires multiple steps to complete
- Has many options to complete; does not have a set procedure
- May require calculating rates
- May involve documents (e.g. tables, graphs)
- May require converting between whole numbers, decimals, percentages, ratios, and fractions
