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 NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Mathematics K-10 programming page contains useful information to assist with the programming of 7-10 mathematics, including links to sample scope and sequences as well as sample units for Stages 4 and 5.

The Mathematics K-10 Continuum of key ideas describes the content to be developed at each stage of learning for each content strand and working mathematically.

When creating a mathematics unit of learning you may choose to use the flowchart of a learning design process. The process encompasses the general principles of curriculum planning and programming and draws upon crucial elements of the Mathematics K-10 Syllabus. It also addresses the four key questions underpinning the teaching and learning cycle.
