Mathematics – Multi-age – Year A – Unit 8

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

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.

Students are provided with opportunities to:
