Students solve simple problems involving the four operations using a range of strategies including digital technology. They estimate to check the reasonableness of answers and approximate answers by rounding. Students identify and describe factors and multiples. They explain...
Level description | Mathematics | Level 5
Number and Algebra
Students recognise the properties of prime, composite, square and triangular numbers and determine sets of these numbers. They solve problems that involve all four operations with whole numbers and describe the use of integers in everyday contexts. Students locate fractions and...
Level description | Mathematics | Level 6
Number and Algebra
Students solve problems involving the order, addition and subtraction of integers. They make the connections between whole numbers and index notation and the relationship between perfect squares and square roots. They solve problems involving all four operations with fractions...
Level description | Mathematics | Level 7
Number and Algebra
Students use efficient mental and written strategies to make estimates and carry out the four operations with integers, and apply the index laws to whole numbers. They identify and describe rational and irrational numbers in context. Students estimate answers and solve everyday...
Level description | Mathematics | Level 8
Number and Algebra
Students apply the index laws using integer indices to variables and numbers, express numbers in scientific notation, solve problems involving very small and very large numbers, and check the order of magnitude of calculations. They solve problems involving simple interest. Students...
Level description | Mathematics | Level 9
Number and Algebra
Students recognise the connection between simple and compound interest. They solve problems involving linear equations and inequalities, quadratic equations and pairs of simultaneous linear equations and related graphs, with and without the use of digital technology. Students...
Level description | Mathematics | Level 10
Level 10A provides optional, additional content for students to be extended in their mathematical studies.
Students could extend work in number and algebra to investigate the structure and properties of number systems, with further analysis of order relations and inequalities. They could extend...
Level description | Mathematics
In Level A, students experience and respond to personally relevant and familiar situations and events that regularly and routinely involve activities and actions such as comparing, adding and removing, distributing, placing and moving.
Level description | Mathematics
Number and Algebra
Students participate in everyday activities that involve numbers and counting, comparing groups of objects, and pattern activities. Students can rote count to three. Students identify ‘one’ and ‘lots’ of objects and show an understanding of ‘more...
Level description | Mathematics | Level B
In Level B, students participate in everyday activities involving making simple correspondences between objects, and explore qualitative, quantitative and comparative concepts in action and language such as none, one, more, same, different, again and gather.
They recognise regularity in some events...
Level description | Mathematics
In Level C, students demonstrate awareness in practical situations, connecting objects, numbers names and numerals from one to three, using ‘one more than’ and ‘one less than’.
They match like objects, describe differences between objects for given attribute, show familiarity...
Level description | Mathematics
Number and Algebra
Students connect number names and numerals with sets of up to 10 elements. They match individual objects with counting sequences up to and back from 10. They recognise and point to numerals in and around the classroom, for example, numbers on a clock face. Students use concrete...
Level description | Mathematics | Level D
In Level D, students actively use concrete models to represent number in various situations, and use number names when comparing, counting, ordering, adding to or taking away from sets of one to five objects.
They form the initial terms of basic patterns and identify and sequence regular daily...
