Mathematics – Multi-age – Year B – Unit 2

Patterns have something that repeats over and over and over again. This unit develops knowledge, understanding, and skills of two-dimensional shapes and their attributes and properties.

In this unit students will learn to:

  • sort collections using attributes and properties
  • recognise, name, and explore properties of two-dimensional shapes
  • investigate repeating shape patterns that grow, shrink, radiate, and are symmetrical
