Partitions

This unit is about partitioning whole numbers. It focuses on partitioning numbers to “make a ten” or a decade when adding whole numbers, for example 8 + 6 can be solved as (8 + 2) + 4. The unit uses measurement as a context.

Measurement Investigations 2

The students will complete a number of practical measuring investigations, with an emphasis on accuracy of measuring and communication of their findings.

Spaced Out

In this unit we explore the volume (in cubic units) of our skyscraper constructions and those of others in the class. We investigate the most efficient way to pack cuboids in a confined space and conclude with "water play" as we investigate the relationship between millilitres and cubic centimetres

Snails

Measure using cm.

Solve problems using minutes as the unit.

Devise and use problem solving strategies to explore situations mathematically
