### First steps in mathematics: Number – Book 2

The content of this book is organised into topics including understanding operations, calculating, and reasoning about number patterns.

### Representing Patterns (Year 7) - Calculate

Patterns can be represented in several ways and this unit will explore five different representations.

### Work sample Year 4 Mathematics: Number: addition and subtraction

This work sample demonstrates evidence of student learning in relation to aspects of the achievement standards for Year 4 Mathematics. The primary purpose for the work sample is to demonstrate the standard, so the focus is on what is evident in the sample not how it was created. The sample is an authentic representation ...

### Space Race Game (Introducing Algorithmic Thinking) - Calculate

Space Race is a simple board game that teachers can use to introduce the concept of algorithmic sequencing to students. The teaching points provided with the game assist teachers to introduce the use of an algorithm (a simple set of mathematical instructions) to describe the trajectory of an object across a grid plane from ...

### Pattern hunt

Students copy, describe and continue simple repeating patterns.

### Pattern pursuit

Students identify, describe and create repeating patterns.

### The animals went in two by two

Students recall the twos number sequence and use skip counting by twos to count a collection.

### Number Patterns - Calculate

This resource introduces a number of activities focused around number patterns. Helping children to explore, continue and describe number patterns can lead to an early understanding of algebraic concepts.

### Representing Patterns - Calculate

In this activity, students examine the representation of patterns, including as diagrams, charts and formulas.

### Repeating and growing patterns: Foundation – planning tool

This planning resource for Foundation is for the topic of Repeating and growing patterns. Students begin to appreciate patterns that occur around them. They learn to recognise, copy and continue different repeating patterns and observe natural patterns in the world around them.

### Repeating and growing patterns: Year 1 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 1 is for the topic of Repeating and growing patterns. Students begin to appreciate patterns that occur around them. They learn to recognise, copy and continue different repeating patterns and observe natural patterns in the world around them.

### Repeating and growing patterns: Year 2 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 2 is for the topic of Repeating and growing patterns. Students continue to appreciate and observe how patterns are present throughout mathematics. They recognise, describe and create additive patterns that grow or shrink by a constant amount. They also identify missing elements in pattern sequences.

### Follow and create algorithms: Year 3 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 3 is for the topic of Follow and create algorithms. Students create and follow algorithms involving a short sequence of steps to generate number patterns. They use digital tools such as spreadsheets and calculators to explore algorithms with larger sets of numbers. Students identify any patterns ...

### Algebra: Foundation to Year 9

This comprehensive resource describes the progression of algebra-related ideas and algebraic thinking. The resource demonstrates examples of relevant teaching strategies, investigations, activity plans and connected concepts in algebra including teaching and cultural implications.

In this lesson students revise and extend fluency of recall of the 4× facts. Students develop proficiently in multiplying and dividing by four, understanding the patterns in multiples of four, and applying strategies for mental multiplication with an emphasis on visual and numerical pattern recognition.

### Follow and create algorithms: Year 5 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 5 is for the topic of Follow and create algorithms. Students create, follow, and modify algorithms involving a sequence of steps and decisions to experiment with multiplication and division, factors and multiples, and the relationship of these to divisibility. Students use digital tools such ...

### Use rules and algorithms: Year 6 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 6 is for the topic of Use rules and algorithms. Students generate and investigate patterns using concrete materials, geometric shapes, calculators and spreadsheets. Some examples are growing patterns using dots, cubes or sticks; systematically exploring dividing by 9 or multiplying by 11 ...

### Follow and create algorithms: Year 4 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 4 is for the topic of Follow and create algorithms. Students create and follow algorithms involving a sequence of steps and decisions to generate number patterns involving addition or multiplication. They analyse the patterns generated and describe and explain them.
