In Level 5, learning in Mathematics builds on each student’s prior learning and experiences. Students engage in a range of approaches to the learning and doing of mathematics that develop their understanding of and fluency with concepts, procedures and processes by making connections, reasoning, problem-solving and practice. Proficiency in mathematics enables students to respond to familiar and unfamiliar situations by employing mathematical strategies to make informed decisions and solve problems efficiently.
Students further develop proficiency and positive dispositions towards mathematics and its use as they:
By the end of Level 5, students use place value to write and order decimals including decimals greater than one. They express natural numbers as products of factors and identify multiples and divisors. Students order and represent, add and subtract fractions with the same or related denominators. They represent common percentages and connect them to their fraction and decimal equivalents. Students use their proficiency with multiplication facts and efficient mental and written calculation strategies to multiply large numbers by one- and two-digit numbers and divide by one-digit numbers. They check the reasonableness of their calculations using estimation. Students use mathematical modelling to solve financial and other practical problems, formulating and solving problems, choosing arithmetic...

They express natural numbers as products of factors and identify multiples and divisors. Students order and represent, add and subtract fractions with the same or related denominators. They represent common percentages and connect them to their fraction and decimal equivalents. Students use their proficiency with multiplication facts and efficient mental and written calculation strategies to multiply large numbers by one- and two-digit numbers and divide by one-digit numbers. They check the reasonableness of their calculations using estimation. Students use mathematical modelling to solve financial and other practical problems, formulating and solving problems, choosing arithmetic operations and interpreting results in terms of the situation.
Students apply properties of numbers and operations to find unknown values in numerical equations involving multiplication and division. They design and use algorithms to identify and explain patterns in the factors and multiples of numbers.
Students choose and use appropriate metric units to measure the attributes of length, mass and capacity, and to solve problems involving perimeter and area. Students convert between 12- and 24-hour time. They estimate, construct and measure angles in degrees. Students use grid coordinates to locate and move positions.
Students connect objects to their two-dimensional nets. They perform and describe the results of transformations and identify any symmetries.
Students plan and conduct statistical investigations that collect nominal and ordinal categorical and discrete numerical data with and without digital tools. Students identify the mode and interpret the shape of distributions of data in context. They interpret and compare data represented in line graphs.
Students conduct repeated chance experiments, list the possible outcomes, estimate likelihoods and make comparisons between those with and without equally likely outcomes.
