# Late level 2 plan (term 1)

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.

## Mathematical magic

Level Two
Integrated
Units of Work
This unit provides you with a range of opportunities to assess the entry level of achievement of your students.
• Classify whole numbers as even or odd and generalise the nature of sums when even and odd numbers are added.
• Recognise that sums remain the same if the same amount is added and subtracted to the two addends, e.g. 17 + 19 = 27 + 9.
• Create and follow instructions to make a model made with shapes.
• Recombi...

## Building on two-digit place value

Level Two
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
This unit supports students learning to understand the structure of two-digit numbers and how to operate with them.

Session One

• Calculate the gains and losses in a game of Snakes and Ladders.

Session Two

• Represent two digit numbers with play money.
• Add and subtract two digit numbers.

Session Three

• Use ‘up through ten’ and ‘back through ten strategies to add and subtract single digit numbers.

Session Four

• Rename three...

## Paper planes: Level 2

Level Two
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
This unit uses the context of making paper planes to develop understanding of metre and centimetre measures. Students investigate a variety of paper airplane designs, experiment to see which planes fly the furthest, and decide winners by measuring and comparing results.
• Estimate using metres and centimetres.
• Measure to the nearest metre and centimetre.

## Number lines and bead strings

Level Two
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
In this unit five-based bead strings and number lines are used to solve addition and subtraction problems. The aim is to get students that use an early additive strategy to solve problems using a tidy number strategy with 10.
• Solve addition problems like 8 + 4 = by going 8 + 2 = 10, 10 + 2 (more) = 12.
• Solve subtraction problems like 14 – 6 by going 14 – 4 = 10, 10 – 2 (more) = 8.

## Honeycomb

Level Two
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
In this unit students sort and explore two-dimensional and three-dimensional geometric shapes, identify and describe their distinguishing features and come to appreciate the efficiency of the tessellating hexagon in meeting the needs of honeybees.
• Identify distinguishing features of 2D (plane) shapes using the language of sides and corners.
• Identify distinguishing features of 3D shapes using the language of faces, edges, vertex/vertices.
• Explore hexagons, recognising that they tessellate.
• Make hollow prism shapes and describe their features.
• Rese...
