Numeracy K-6 (in History)

Numeracy content within the study of History involves the construction and interpretation of time lines, graphs, tables, maps, scales and statistics. Students develop confidence and proficiency in applying these skills to represent, comprehend and analyse quantitative data to make meaning of the past.



HTe-1 Personal and Family Histories:
Locating countries, sequencing stages of life, past and future, graphing and sorting information about families links to Time, Position and Data


HT1-1 Present and Past Family Life:
Graphically representing family structure, sequencing days of week, months and seasons links to Time and Data

HT1-2 The Past in the Present:
Using local area maps links to Position 2. Sequencing technology development over time links to Time 2


HT2-5 First Contacts:
Creating timelines links to Time 2. Outlining voyages links to Position 1 and 2


HT3-2 The Australian Colonies:
Outlining settlement patterns links to Time, Position and Data. Identifying countries people migrated from links to Position and Data. Interpreting timelines and data links to Time and Data.
