This sample Stage 1 unit further develops students' knowledge, understanding and skills of place value and number representation.

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:

  • use representations of groups of 10
  • quantify, organise and represent large collections
  • explore place value through partitioning
  • demonstrate equivalence
  • compare numbers through different representations
  • find patterns when representing large numbers
  • see and explore that an analog clock is made by curving a number line
  • use a grid structure to describe the paths between numbers.
