PATTERNING GENERALISATIONS ALGEBRAIC REASONING
  • Uses letters to represent variables and writes algebraic expressions representing real life situations
  • Creates and evaluates algebraic expressions by substituting a variable and applies arithmetic laws to algebraic expressions
  • Describes, extends, creates and predicts number patterns

KLA APPLICATION AND CONSIDERATIONS

HISTORY

  • Sequences historical events and periods within a chronological framework, referencing a particular period of time

SCIENCE

  • Identifies in fair tests, variables to be controlled (held constant), measured and changed
  • Constructs and uses a range of representations, including graphs, keys and models to represent and analyse patterns or relationships including using digital technologies
