# Early level 2 plan (term 2)

Planning notes
This plan is a starting point for planning a mathematics and statistics teaching programme for a term. The resources listed cover about 50% of your teaching time. Further resources need to be added to meet the specific learning needs of your class, to support your local curriculum and to provide sufficient teaching for a full term.

## Parties and favourites

Level Two
Integrated
Units of Work

In this unit we conduct a number of investigations using a party or favourites theme. Students count, compare, organise, analyse, display and interpret data and at the same time, apply early additive strategies for combining numbers.

• Pose investigative questions.
• Plan for and collect category data.
• Display data in tally charts, pictographs and bar graphs.
• Make statements about data displays.

## Arrays hooray

Level Two
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
In this unit students are given the opportunity to explore multiplication concepts using arrays. The use of multiple strategies and the sharing of strategies is encouraged, in group and whole class situations.
• Solve multiplication problems by using skip counting or additive strategies.
• Interpret and solve multiplication story problems.

## Supermarket displays

Level Two
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
In this unit students explore the number patterns created when tins are stacked in different arrangements and keep track of the numbers involved by drawing up a table of values.
• Identify patterns in number sequences.
• Systematically “count” to establish rules for sequential patterns.
• Use rules to make predictions.

## Outlining area

Level Two
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
This unit of work explores the measurement of area. Students estimate and measure area using square centimetres.
• Recognise the need for a standard unit of area.
• Measure surfaces using square centimetres.
• Estimate the measure of surfaces using square centimetres.

## Matariki - Level 2

Level Two
Integrated
Units of Work
This unit builds the learning of mathematics around celebrations of Matariki, the Māori New Year. The sessions provide meaningful contexts that highlight Māori culture and provide powerful learning opportunities that connect different strands of mathematics.

Session One

• Use place value based strategies to subtract single and two digit numbers.

Session Two

• Interpret a calendar to make decisions about dates.
