Develop students' skills of combining, separating, comparing and forming groups with quantities with this two-week unit aimed at Kindergarten-level students.

## 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.

In this unit – 'A fraction (like one half) can mean half of a measure or half of a collection', students are provided opportunities to:

• combine and separate quantities to identify the smaller parts that are found within a total quantity
• compare quantities and identify the difference between quantities or equal groups
• distribute items from a collection into smaller groups and recognise whether the groups are equal or not.
