Abstract/Summary Numeracy is a general capability to be developed in all leami11g areas of the Australian Curriculum. We evaluated the numeracy demands of the F -10 curriculum, using a model of numeracy that incorporates mathematical knowledge, dispositions, tool s, contexts, and a critical orientation to the use of mathematics. Findings of the history curriculum audit, presented in this paper, highlight the distinction between the numeracy demands and opportunities of the curriculum, and uncover mismatches between claims made about numeracy in the curriculum materials.
