UNDERSTANDING MATHEMATICAL INFORMATION IN TEXTS AND TASKS

APPLYING WHOLE NUMBER CONCEPTS

ESTIMATING AND PROBLEM SOLVING

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

- 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

UNDERSTANDING FRACTIONS, DECIMALS, PERCENTAGES, RATES, RATIOS

UNDERSTANDING MONEY AND FINANCE

KLA APPLICATION AND CONSIDERATIONS

LANGUAGES

- Understands that other countries have a different currency to Australia

MUSIC

- Continues singing songs and dancing using number
- Counting beats and recognising 2 sounds on a beat aurally

DANCE

- Counts beats in dance sequences
- Moves into groups of a set number
- Musical statue number groupings
- Inversion of movement sequence eg. upside-down

VISUAL ARTS

- Creates symbols to represent 1 to 9 in a grid and creates artworks from these symbols
- Visually represents number stories through image
- Makes patterns using arrays

DRAMA

- Role plays using addition, subtraction and number
- Role plays of shopping with money language at point of sale

LANGUAGES

- Expresses age in the target language
- Counts, adds, subtracts and orders numbers up to two digits in the target language
- Identifies and locates numbers in familiar texts, oral instructions and everyday situations in the target language

MUSIC

- Counts using a steady pulse up to 3 digits and skip counting
- Recognises aurally up to 4 sounds on a beat
- Identifies accents/metre (grouping of beats) aurally

DANCE

- Structures positions in rows and columns
- Models grouping
- Identifies a set movement sequence by number

VISUAL ARTS

- Uses illustration and other artistic forms to show
^{1}⁄_{2},^{1}⁄_{4},^{1}⁄_{8} - Experiments with form to demonstrate columns, rows and arrays
- Uses money embedded into an artwork eg, rubbings or note/coin images and symbols

DRAMA

- Role plays problem solving and position
