3–6 multi-age, Year A – Unit 06

This unit introduces the big idea that our number system extends infinitely to very large and very small numbers.

Students are provided with opportunities to:

  • read, represent and order numbers up to millions
  • compare, order and represent decimals (Stage 3)
  • use partitioning and place value knowledge to add and subtract
  • identify the relationship between addition and subtraction.

Content in this unit is informed by the lessons in Stage 2, Year A – Unit 6 and Stage 3, Year A – Unit 6. Please refer to these units for additional lesson guidance.
