Programs should:

  • reflect where students are at in regards to the stage content in the Mathematics K–10 Syllabus
  • make connections, where relevant, across sub-strands to assist students in seeing the connections between concepts and their real life applications.

The Mathematics K–10 continuum of key ideas (PDF 1.7MB) describes the content to be developed at each stage of learning and will assist teachers program for each content strand and working mathematically.

The NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Mathematics K–10 programming page contains useful information to assist with the programming of K–6 mathematics, including links to sample scope and sequences as well as sample units for Early Stage 1 to Stage 3.

Scope and sequences

Schools may plan a mathematics scope and sequence as part of their programming for each year or stage of learning. Scope and sequences are flexible and fluid documents. They provide a brief overview of the key concepts and ideas addressed in a learning and teaching program for an individual stage or year. The following examples can be modified for different school contexts and students.
