# Early Stage 1, mathematics – Unit 01

Introduce students to sorting objects using attributes in this sample unit supporting implementation of the Mathematics K–10 Syllabus (2022).

## 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.

In this unit, 'Attributes can be used to sort objects', students will learn to:

• combine and separate quantities
• recognise and explain how a group of shapes has been sorted
• describe two-dimensional spatial structures
• organise objects into simple data displays and interpret these displays.

### Syllabus focus and content groups

Representing whole number – MAO-WM-01, MAE-RWN-01, MAE-RWN-02

• Instantly name the number of objects within small collections
• Connect counting and numerals to quantities
• Use the counting sequence of ones flexibly
• Identify the number before as ‘one less’ and the number after as ‘one more’ than a given number

Combining and separating quantities – MAO-WM-01, MAE-CSQ-01, MAE-CSQ-02

• Identify part–whole relationships in numbers up to 10
• Model additive relations and compare quantities

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

• 2D shapes: Sort, describe and name familiar shapes
• 2D shapes: Represent shapes

Data – MAO-WM-01, MAE-DATA-01

• Respond to questions, collect information and discuss possible outcomes of activities
• Organise objects into simple data displays and interpret the displays
