# 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.

### Early Stage 1

##### Representing whole numbers – MAO-WM-01, MAE-RWN-01, MAE-RWN-02
• Instantly name the number of objects within small collections

• 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
##### Forming groups – MAO-WM-01, MAE-FG-01, MAE-FG-02
• Record grouping and sharing
##### Geometric measure – MAO-WM-01, MAE-GM-01, MAE-GM-02
• Position: Describes position and movement of oneself
• Length: Use direct and indirect comparisons to decide with is longer

### Stage 1
