Geometry and Measurement

Level 1

In a range of meaningful contexts, students will be engaged in thinking mathematically and statistically. They will solve problems and model situations that require them to:

Geometry and Measurement

Measurement

Order and compare objects or events by length, area, volume and capacity, weight (mass), turn (angle), temperature, and time by direct comparison and/or counting whole numbers of units.

Shape

Sort objects by their appearance.

Position and Orientation

Give and follow instructions for movement that involves distances, directions, and half or quarter turns.

Describe their position relative to a person or object.

Transformation

Communicate and record the results of translations, reflections, and rotations on plane shapes.

Level 2

In a range of meaningful contexts, students will be engaged in thinking mathematically and statistically. They will solve problems and model situations that require them to:

Geometry and Measurement

Measurement

Create and use appropriate units and devices to measure length, area, volume and capacity, weight (mass), turn (angle), temperature, and time.

Partition and/or combine like measures and communicate them, using numbers and units.

Shape

Sort objects by their spatial features, with justification.

Identify and describe the plane shapes found in objects.

Position and orientation

Create and use simple maps to show position and direction.

Describe different views and pathways from locations on a map.

Transformation

Predict and communicate the results of translations, reflections, and rotations on plane shapes.

Level 3

In a range of meaningful contexts, students will be engaged in thinking mathematically and statistically. They will solve problems and model situations that require them to:

Geometry and Measurement

Measurement

Use linear scales and whole numbers of metric units for length, area, volume and capacity, weight (mass), angle, temperature, and time.

Find areas of rectangles and volumes of cuboids by applying multiplication.

Shape

Classify plane shapes and prisms by their spatial features.

Represent objects with drawings and models.

Position and orientation

Use a co-ordinate system or the language of direction and distance to specify locations and describe paths.

Transformation

Describe the transformations (reflection, rotation, translation, or enlargement) that have mapped one object on to another.
