Daily number sense instructional sequence – Stage 2 and 3

Within the 3-6 units, each lesson begins with a Daily number sense activity focusing on Number and algebra and the overarching 'Working Mathematically' processes. These activities target students’ knowledge, understanding and skills and are designed to take 10 to 15 minutes.

Topics for each Daily number sense activity have been mapped to syllabus outcomes based on the Mathematics Stage 2 and Stage 3 sample scope and sequence. For each unit, there are 3 ‘activate knowledge’ activities in the first week and there are 3 ‘looped revision’ activities in the second week. Lesson 4 and Lesson 8 provide teachers with the opportunity to choose activities based on student formative assessment data and levels of engagement.
