APPLYING ADDITION, SUBTRACTION, MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION
  • 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
