ASPECTS OF NUMERACY FOCUS AREA 1

APPLYING ADDITION, SUBTRACTION, MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION

early in STAGE 1

• Models addition and subtraction
• Recalls combinations of numbers that add to numbers up to 20 as well as equivalent number sentences
• Uses strategies for addition and subtraction of one- and two-digit numbers
• Uses rhythmic and skip counts by twos, fives and tens from zero
• Models and uses equal ‘groups of’ objects as a strategy for multiplication
• Models division by sharing a collection equally into a given number of groups

end of STAGE 1

• Makes connections between addition and subtraction, uses strategies for addition and subtraction of two-digit numbers
• Solves word problems involving addition and subtraction
• Models and uses repeated addition as a strategy for multiplication
• Models and uses arrays described in terms of ‘rows’ and ‘columns’ as a strategy for multiplication
• Models and uses groups, arrays and repeated subtraction as strategies for division
