# Multi-age 3–6, mathematics, Year B – Unit 08

This 2-week, Year B unit develops the big idea that visual representations help us understand aspects of our world (chance and position).

## Syllabus

Syllabus outcomes 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 opportunities to:

• use directional language to interpret and locate positions on a grid map while describing routes between points (Stage 2)
• predict and describe possible outcomes from chance experiments (Stage 2)
• use visualisation, language and multiple representations of position and chance concepts (Stage 2)
• plot and translate shapes on a Cartesian plane (Stage 3)
• explore and experiment with frequency and sample size containing equal and unequal chance (Stage 3)
• present probability outcomes and create random generators (Stage 3).
