# Stage 2, mathematics, Year A – Unit 08

This Year A unit introduces the big idea that visual representations help understand aspects of our world for chance and position.

## Syllabus

Syllabus outcomes from Mathematics K–10 Syllabus (2022) © NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) for and on behalf of the Crown in right of the State of New South Wales, 2024.

In this 2-week unit students are provided opportunities to:

• use directional language to interpret and locate positions on a grid map while describing routes between points
• predict and describe possible outcomes from chance experiments
• use visualisation, language and multiple representations of position and chance concepts.

### Syllabus outcomes and content groups

Geometric measure A – MAO-WM-01, MA2-GM-01

• Position: Interpret movement on a map
• Position: Locate positions on grid maps

Geometric measure B – MAO-WM-01, MA2-GM-01

• Position: Create and interpret grid maps
• Position: Use directional language and describe routes with grid maps

Chance A – MAO-WM-01, MA2-CHAN-01

Identify possible outcomes from chance experiments

Chance B – MAO-WM-01, MA2-CHAN-01
