Stage 2, Year A – Unit 11

This 2-week Year A unit develops the big idea that the number system extends infinitely to very large and very small numbers.

Students are provided opportunities to:

  • partition, rename, represent and order numbers up to 6 digits
  • use partitioning and place value knowledge when multiplying and dividing
  • see the inverse relationship between multiplication and division, using the associative and distributive properties of multiplication.
