Developing students’ mathematical reasoning relies upon having access to tasks that are easily understood and promote thinking. This page highlights current mathematics resources that are useful for syllabus implementation.
- Teaching measurement Stage 4 (PDF 1.4 MB) provides practical lessons for the teaching of measurement. See Early Stage 1 to Stage 3 resources for lessons on teaching measurement in Stages 2 and 3.
- Diagnostic tasks for both Stage 4 and 5 can be found on the assessment resources page on the Numeracy Skills framework website. They assist teachers accurately identify mathematical skills, knowledge and understanding and provide a diagnostic snapshot of the key ideas and concepts from the syllabus.
- Creative mathematics tasks is a collection of teaching strategies that explore and connect mathematical concepts with practical activities, investigations, ICT and collaborative tasks.
- Red dragonfly mathematics challenge provides a range of easily understood problems to challenge and stimulate student interest and reward perseverance.
- Shaping statistics in Stage 4 (DOCX 43 KB) is designed to help teachers engage students with the Stage 4 Statistics and Probability.
- Shaping statistics in Stage 5 (DOCX 24 KB) is designed to help teachers engage students with the Stage 5 Statistics and Probability.
- The development of graph understanding in the mathematics curriculum (PDF 2.3 MB). Graphs play a highly significant role across the mathematics curriculum, providing visual means of presenting information that may be held for example in a functional relationship or a data set. This report focuses on the application of graphs for portraying data, and their potential as instruments for reasoning about quantitative information.
- The Numeracy skills framework website contains assessment resources to assist teachers to accurately identify the skills, knowledge and understanding of students. They are intended to be a diagnostic snapshot of the key ideas and concepts from the NSW mathematics K-10 syllabus.
