### Metric units and using instruments: Year 6 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 6 is for the topic of Metric units and using instruments. Students make connections between the metric system and decimals. The metric system is linked to the base 10 number system, in that each unit is a power of 10. The base unit represents 100 = 1 and the other units grow or decrease by ...

### Place value: Year 4 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 4 is for the topic of Place value. Students apply their understanding of fractions and division to divide a whole (rectangle model) into 10 equal pieces. They learn that each piece represents 0.1 or one tenth of the length of the original whole.

### Place value: Year 5 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 5 is for the topic of Place value. Students extend understanding of place value by interpreting, comparing and ordering decimal numbers including tenths, hundredths, thousandths and beyond. Students apply multiplicative thinking to explain and model the relationship between consecutive places ...

### Four operations: Year 6 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 6 is for the topic of Four operations. Students apply knowledge of place value to add and subtract decimals, using digital tools where appropriate. They further develop whole number multiplication and then strengthen their understanding of decimals by multiplying and dividing decimals and ...

### Mathematical modelling: Year 6 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 6 is for the topic of Mathematical modelling. Students use mathematical modelling to solve practical problems involving natural and rational numbers and percentages, including in financial contexts. They formulate the problem, choose operations and efficient calculation strategies, and use ...

### Number: Foundation to Year 9

This comprehensive resource describes the progression of number-related ideas showing the relationship to other curriculum strands. The resource demonstrates examples of relevant teaching strategies, investigations, activity plans and connected concepts in number including teaching and cultural implications.

### Fractions, decimals and percentages: Year 5 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 5 is for the topic of Fractions, decimals and percentages. Students recognise that fractions, decimal fractions and percentages are equivalent ways to represent and make sense of quantities. They learn about the different contexts where it makes sense to use one of the constructs to express ...

### All operations: Year 7 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 7 is for the topic of All operations. Students use all operations with positive rational numbers and to choose the most appropriate and efficient approach when solving a variety of problems.

### Number sequence: Year 7 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 7 is for the topic of Number sequence. Students extend their understanding of equivalence of fraction with visual representations such as a number line that extends beyond zero; concrete materials; and common multiples and fraction walls. Students learn to work with equivalence and explore ...

### Fruit fractions: Fruit kebab fun

In this lesson, we use fruit to explore common/decimal fractions relating to tenths. Students will use coloured Unifix cubes to represent tenths of a fraction on a ‘fruit kebab’. They will discover the idea of equivalent fractions and make connections using a fraction wall. The lesson uses interactive activities, discussions ...

### Drone safety lesson: How close, how far?

This lesson provides an authentic context to develop skills of estimation and measuring length. It provides an opportunity for students to connect decimal representations to the metric system and convert from centimetres to metres, and metres to kilometres. It also provides a context to investigate and become familiar with ...

### Assessment tasks: metric units and relationship to decimals

Use the diagnostic tasks, Page sections and Decimals and measures, to assess a student’s understanding of metric units and their relationship to decimals.

### Estimating and rounding decimals

In this lesson, students draw on prior knowledge of rounding whole numbers to develop their understanding and fluency when rounding decimals and are encouraged to reason and problem-solve through a variety of contextual activities. Students will also develop an appreciation of the role of estimation in mathematics and science.

### Smart shopping

Students compare and evaluate different shopping options.

### Operations: Foundation to Year 9

This comprehensive resource describes the progression of ideas that cover addition and subtraction of integers; multiplication and division of integers; the four operations with common and decimal fractions; and operation applications with percent, rate and ratio.

### Work sample Year 5 Mathematics: Locating decimals
