Multi-age 3–6, mathematics, Year B – Unit 03

Develop students' understanding of the big idea that what needs to be measured determines the unit of measurement in this sample unit.

Syllabus

Outcomes and content descriptors from Mathematics K–10 Syllabus (2022) © NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) for and on behalf of the Crown in right of the State of New South Wales, 2024.

Students are provided with opportunities to:

• measure and compare lengths of objects and locations using kilometres (Stage 3), metres, centimetres and millimetres
• identify and measure the perimeter of shapes, objects and locations
• read and represent analog and digital time.

Stage 2

Geometric measure B – MAO-WM-01, MA2-GM-02

Length: Use scaled instruments to measure and compare lengths

Two-dimensional spatial structure B – MAO-WM-01, MA2-2DS-01

2D shapes: Create two-dimensional shapes that result from combining and splitting common shapes

Non-spatial measure B – MAO-WM-01, MA2-NSM-02

• Time: Represent and interpret digital time displays
• Time: Use am and pm notation

Stage 3

Geometric measure A – MAO-WM-01, MA3-GM-02

• Length: Use metres and kilometres for length and distances
• Length: Measure lengths to find perimeters

Geometric measure B – MAO-WM-01, MA3-GM-02

• Length: Connect decimal representations to the metric system
