Mathematics and Statistics

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:

Number and Algebra

Number strategies

Use a range of counting, grouping, and equal-sharing strategies with whole numbers and fractions.

Number knowledge

Know the forward and backward counting sequences of whole numbers to 100.

Know groupings with five, within ten and with ten.

Equations and expressions

Communicate and explain counting, grouping, and equal-sharing strategies, using words, numbers, and pictures.

Patterns and relationships

Generalise that the next counting number gives the result of adding one object to a set and that counting the number of objects in a set tells how many.

Create and continue sequential patterns.

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:

Number and Algebra

Number strategies

additive strategies with whole numbers and fractions.

Number knowledge

Numbers to at least 1000.

Know the basic addition and subtraction facts.

Know how many ones, tens, and hundreds are in whole numbers to at least 1000.

Know simple fractions in everyday use.

Equations and expressions

Communicate and interpret simple additive strategies, using words, diagrams (pictures), and symbols.

Patterns and relationships

Generalise that whole numbers can be partitioned in many ways.

Find rules for the next member in a sequential pattern.

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:

Number and Algebra

Number strategies

Use a range of additive and simple multiplicative strategies with whole numbers, fractions, decimals, and percentages.

Number knowledge

Know basic multiplication and division facts.

Know counting sequences for whole numbers.

Know how many tenths, tens, hundreds, and thousands are in whole numbers.

Know fractions and percentages in everyday use.

Equations and expressions

Record and interpret additive and simple multiplicative strategies, using words, diagrams, and symbols, with an understanding of equality.

Patterns and relationships

Generalise the properties of addition and subtraction with whole numbers.

Connect members of sequential patterns with their ordinal position and use tables, graphs, and diagrams to find relationships between successive elements of number and spatial patterns
