# Early Stage 1, mathematics – Unit 08

This sample unit explores the big idea 'what needs to be measured determines the unit of measurement'.

## Syllabus

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:

• compare and describe the attributes of measurement
• experiment with length
• tell time.

### 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
• Recognise number patterns
• Use the counting sequence of ones flexibly
• Connect counting and numerals to quantities

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

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

Geometric measure – MAO-WM-01, MAE-GM-01, MAE-GM-02, MAE-GM-03

• Length: Use direct and indirect comparisons to decide which is longer
• Length: Create half a length

Non-spatial measure – MAO-WM-01, MAE-NSM-02

Time: Tell time on the hour on analog and digital clocks
