This two-week unit develops student knowledge, understanding and skills of making and using equal groups.

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, model and use equal and unequal groups
  • share collections by forming equal groups
  • use arrangements to distinguish between the number of groups and the number in each group when describing collections of objects
  • solve multiplication and division problems using objects, diagrams, images, and actions.
