Each term revisits concepts allowing teaching and learning to take individual students to higher levels of understanding.

·         Contexts for Number and Place Value include Whole Number, Length, Time, Mass, Volume and Money.

·         Money used to develop concepts of Place Value including Decimals within Operations.

·         All strategies emphasise use of Place Value components and mental computation (Partial Sums, Partial Products).

·         Teachers need to make explicit the links between the four operations and Fractions.

·         Problem Solving activities aligned to topics under investigation presented to students to further develop Proficiency Strands of Australian Curriculum (Understanding, Fluency, Problem Solving & Reasoning).

·         All activities emphasise the use of Number in student relevant authentic open (self differentiating) contexts.

Please note that this is a sample only and each school would make decisions regarding an agreed sequence of learning based on student need and prior learning.
