# Stage 1, mathematics, Year A – Unit 10

This sample Stage 1 unit explores the big idea behind position and chance.

In this unit, 'Sometimes things move and change location', students are provided with opportunities to:

• describes and compare the position of objects using positional language
• give and follow directions
• describe and identify the position of numbers
• recognise and describe the element of chance in events and games.
