# Late level 2 plan (term 2)

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.

## Popcorn

Level Two
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
This unit includes a number of popcorn investigations, which provide both a purposeful and enjoyable measuring context. The focus of the unit is introducing the students to the need for a standard unit for measuring volume.
• Use non-standard volume units (cups, spoons, bowls) to fill a container and count the number used.
• Recognise the need for a standard unit of volume.
• Measure to the nearest litre and half litre by using litre containers to fill and count.

## Multiplication stories

Level Two
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
In this unit students explore the different situation types to which multiplication can be applied. Particularly, they engage with rate, comparison and array problems.
• Pose different types of word problems.
• Explain their mathematical thinking in solving problems.
• Use a variety of equipment to model their solutions.

## Planning a statistical investigation (Level 2)

Level Two
Statistics
Units of Work
In this unit students will identify how to plan and carry out a statistical investigation, looking at facts about their class as a context.
• Write investigative questions for statistical investigations and design a method of collection of data.
• Display collected data in an appropriate format.
• Make statements about implications or possible actions based on the results of an investigation.
• Make conclusions on the basis of statistical...

## Pede patterns

Level Two
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
This unit is about generating number patterns for certain creatures from the mythical planet of Elsinore. Each ‘Pede’ is made up of square parts and has a number of feet. The patterns range from counting by 2s and 3s, to being the number of feet plus three.
• Continue a simple pattern
• Generalise the pattern.

## Matariki - Level 2

Level Two
