Yes, and there are many more things. I list some below. The concepts of positive, zero, and negative. How to do arithmetic involving zero or negative numbers. Putting numbers in order (increasing or decreasing). Understanding numbers in relation to a diagram (such as a pie chart). Different ways of writing numbers (including decimals, percentages, and simple powers, such as 3²), and when to use them. Converting between different ways of writing numbers. How to round the result of a calculation. Special terms (such as odd, even, average, integer, rational) applied to numbers, and why they are useful. Simple use of parentheses and brackets. Reallife uses of numbers, such as dates, ages, amounts of money, temperatures.
