Mathematics – Multi-age – Year A – Unit 10

This unit develops understanding and skills of position and chance.

Mathematics K-2 Syllabus © 2021 NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) for and on behalf of the Crown in right of the State of New South Wales.

In this unit students will learn to:

  • give, describe, and compare the position of objects using positional language
  • give and follow directions to locations and from one location to another
  • describe and identify the position of numbers using structured materials and formations
  • recognise and describe the element of chance in events and games.
