## 365 Penguins

• Other
• Number and Algebra
• Level Two

This is an activity based on the picture book 365 Penguins

## Multiplying fractions

• Units of Work
• Number and Algebra
• Level Three

The purpose of this series of lessons is to develop understanding of the multiplication of fractions.

This unit supports teaching and learning activities in the Student Fractions e-ako 10 and complements the learning activities in Book 7 Teaching Fractions, Decimals and Percentages and in Book 8 Teaching Number Sense and Algebraic Thinking.

This is the fifth in a series of units developing fractional understanding. This unit builds on these previous units of work:

## Addition, subtraction and equivalent fractions

• Units of Work
• Number and Algebra
• Level Three

The purpose of this series of lessons is to develop understanding of equivalent fractions and the operations of addition and subtraction with fractions.

This unit supports teaching and learning activities in the Student Fractions e-ako 7 and 7+, 8 and 8+, 9 and 9+, and complements the learning activities in Book 7 Teaching Fractions, Decimals and Percentages.

This is the fourth in a series of units developing fractional understanding. This unit builds on these previous units of work:

## Ordering proper and improper fractions

• Units of Work
• Number and Algebra
• Level Two

The purpose of this series of lessons is to develop understanding of the relative size of fractions and where these fit with whole numbers on a number line.

This unit supports teaching and learning activities in the Student Fractions e-ako 5 and 5+, 6 and 6+ and complements the learning activities in Book 7 Teaching Fractions, Decimals and Percentages.

This is the third in a series of units developing fractional understanding. This unit builds on these previous units of work:

## Symbols and sets

• Units of Work
• Number and Algebra
• Level Two

This series of lessons builds upon the students’ experiences of making, naming and recognising common fractions using different physical representations. Its purpose is to develop understanding of the formal language and symbols associated with simple fractions and their representations.

The purpose of this unit is also to develop students’ understanding of fractions of sets.

This unit supports teaching and learning activities in the Student Fractions e-ako 3 and 4 and complements the learning activities in Book 7 Teaching Fractions, Decimals and Percentages.

This is the second in a series of units developing fractional understanding.

This unit builds on the previous unit of work:

## Big Numbers

• Other
• Number and Algebra
• Level Four

This is an activity based on the picture book Big Numbers

## Fair Games

• Units of Work
• Statistics
• Level Five

Many games of chance and activities in maths text books involve rolling two dice and combining the scores, usually by addition. Students often find the probabilities of such events difficult to calculate as they are confused between events (for example a score of 4) and outcomes (for example 3 and 1, 2 and 2, 1 and 3). This unit makes use of a variety of activities where the number of outcomes in the sample space is clearly different from the number of events.

## Dividing Fractions

• Numeracy Activities
• Number and Algebra
• Level Five

learning how to divide a fraction by a fraction
