Mathematics – Multi-age – Year B – Unit 12

This two-week unit develops student knowledge, skills and understanding about repeating patterns, arrays and different ways to present and communicate about data.

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:

  • recognise, name, create and extend various patterns
  • identify that repeating patterns have a core that repeats over and over and over again
  • identify, describe, organise and compare a variety of repeating patterns and arrays
  • communicate their understanding and thinking as they create and explore various patterns and arrays
  • select appropriate methods to display and interpret data.
