Early level 2 plan (term 4)

Thanks for visiting NZMaths.
We are preparing to close this site by the end of August 2024. Maths content is still being migrated onto Tāhūrangi, and we will be progressively making enhancements to Tāhūrangi to improve the findability and presentation of content.

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.

Maps

Level Two
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
In this unit ākonga are introduced to using maps. They use maps to locate landmarks, identify views from different locations, and give directions using left and right turns, and distances.
• Use a map to identify views from a location
• Use compass directions to describe the direction of landmarks
• Describe pathways between map locations.

Staircases

Level Two
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
In this unit ākonga look for and describe patterns they see in different types of staircases and other patterns.
• Continue a sequential pattern.

Data cards: Level 2

Level Two
Statistics
Units of Work
This unit introduces the students to a way of looking at information from a group of individuals, i.e. a data set.
• Pose investigative questions.
• Write data collection or survey questions to support collecting information for investigation.
• Collect information.
• Sort information into categories.
• Display information to answer investigative questions or find out things.
• Answer investigative questions by sorting...

Getting partial

Level Two
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
In this unit we explore fractions of regions as well as fractions of sets. We look for, and develop understanding of, the connection between fractions and division.
• Find fractions of regions.
• Find fractions of sets.
• Identify equivalent fractions.
• Locate fractions on a number line.

Scavenger hunt

Level Two
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
In this unit students participate in a series of scavenger hunts to develop their own personal benchmarks for measures of 1cm, 10cm, 50cm and one metre. An understanding of the relationship between centimetres and metres is also developed.
• Find objects that they estimate to be 1cm, 10cm, 50cm and one metre long.
• Measure lengths of approximately one metre to the nearest cm.
