# Early level 4 plan (term 4)

The Ministry is migrating nzmaths content to Tāhurangi.
Relevant and up-to-date teaching resources are being moved to Tāhūrangi (tahurangi.education.govt.nz).
When all identified resources have been successfully moved, this website will close. We expect this to be in June 2024.
e-ako maths, e-ako Pāngarau, and e-ako PLD 360 will continue to be available.

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.

## Representing 3D objects in 2D drawings

Level Four
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
This unit develops students’ ability to represent three dimensional objects using two dimensional representations.
• Use plans from different viewpoints to represent 3D objects.
• Draw isometric drawings of 3D objects.
• Create nets for polyhedra.
• Interpret the above representations to create a model of the 3D object.

## Balancing Acts

Level Four
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
The unit involves students in solving problems that can be modeled with algebraic equations or expressions. Students are required to describe patterns and relationships using letters to represent variables.
• Predict further members in patterns of equations using relationships within the equations.
• Develop function rules to describe relationships.
• Find specific values for variables from given relationships.

## Getting partial to fractions

Level Four
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
In this unit students partition a length model into equal parts, to create unit fractions. Students form non-unit fractions (e.g. 3/4 and 7/8) and develop strategies to find different names for the same fraction (equivalent fractions). Fractions are added and compared to find the difference and a...
• Find equivalent fractions.
• Compare the size of fractions to order them.
• Find the difference between two fractions by subtraction.
• Find a fraction of a whole number amount.

## Oranges L4

Level Four
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
In this unit we focus on selecting appropriate units for measurement in practical situations. Students are required to justify the instrument they have used in relation to the degree of accuracy required in their measurements.
• Recognise that objects have many measurable attributes.
• Identify and accurately measure attributes of common objects.
• Make decisions based on measurements.

## Weighty Problems

Level Four
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work

This unit comprises six problems for students to apply and interpret measurement of mass. Students are also introduced to the concepts of net and gross mass.

• Select the appropriate standard unit of measurement for a specific application.
• Measure masses with appropriate measuring devices.
• Measure net and gross mass.

## Map it

Level Four
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
This unit explores the mathematics of maps, including scale, coordinates, and bearings.
• Draw a scale map of the classroom
• Find the location of an object using Cartesian coordinates or bearings
