In Level 1, students use mathematical symbols and language as well as materials and drawings in their mathematical explorations of daily life.
Students recognise, represent and order numbers to at least 100 using materials, diagrams, words, numerals and a number line, and apply this with respect...

In Level 3, students increasingly use mathematical terms and symbols to describe computations, measurements and characteristics of objects.
Students recognise, model and order numbers to at least 10 000 and place four digit numbers on a number line with regard for scale. They partition and re-arrange...
Level description | Mathematics
In Level 2, students use grouping partitioning and re-arrangement to apply place value and extend the range of numbers they use and apply to thousands.
Students recognise, model and order numbers to at least 1000 and use a variety of strategies to count efficiently, including skip counting forwards...

In Level 5, students extend decimal fractions to thousandths, and explore the ideas of factors, multiples and divisibility.
Students use estimation and rounding for all four operations, with and without the use of technology for calculation. They solve multiple digit problems involving addition...
Level description | Mathematics
In Level 4, students extend the number system to simple decimal fractions, and broaden their use of measures and scales.
Students model, represent and order numbers to tens of thousands, and extend place value to tenths and hundredths. They investigate odd and even numbers and explore number patterns...
Level description | Mathematics
In Level 6, students work with prime, composite, square and triangular numbers and carry out mental, written and technology based computation to solve whole number problems involving all four operations. They explore everyday situations involving integers, and use a number line to represent them...
Level description | Mathematics
In Level 7, students work with powers of whole numbers, use index notation, represent numbers as products of powers of prime numbers, and investigate square roots of perfect squares. They use number properties to assist with calculation and order, and to add and subtract integers. Students find...
Level description | Mathematics
In Level 8, students consolidate their proficiency with the four arithmetic operations, and combinations of these, for general computation involving natural numbers, integers and rational numbers, with and without the use of technology. They represent these numbers on the real number line. They...
Level description | Mathematics
In Level 9, students develop familiarity with a broader range of non-linear and linear functions and relations, and related algebra and graphs.
Students apply index laws with integer indices to a range of numerical expressions and extend this to algebraic expressions involving numbers and pro-numerals...
Level description | Mathematics
In Level 10, students extend their use of mathematical models to a wide range of familiar and unfamiliar contexts, involving the use of all types of real numbers. They recognise the role of logical argument and proof in establishing mathematical propositions. Students apply mental, written or...
Level description | Mathematics
The proficiencies of Understanding, Fluency, Problem Solving and Reasoning are fundamental to learning mathematics and working mathematically and are applied across all three strands Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability.
Understanding refers to students...
