# Late level 2 plan (term 3)

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.

## Robots

Level Two
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
In this unit students explore movement and direction concepts in the context of programming a robot to move. They will be developing sets of instructions to accomplish tasks, focusing on the use of right, left, forward, backwards and quarter turns.
• Describe the difference between movement and direction.
• Order a set of movement and direction instructions.
• Create a set of instructions.

## Number families and relationships

Level Two
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
The purpose of this unit of three lessons is to develop an understanding of how the operations of addition and subtraction behave and how they relate to one another.
• Recognise three numbers that are related through the operations of addition and subtraction.
• Recognise that there are two related addition and two subtraction equations in a ‘family of facts’.
• Explain, in their own words, the inverse...

## How long does it take?

Level Two
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
This unit involves students in looking at the lengths of time various activities take and calculating how long is spent on these activities in a week.
• Estimate the time taken for daily activities in hours and minutes.
• Use advanced counting or partitioning strategies to solve problems involving minutes and hours.
• Check the reasonableness of answers obtained using a calculator.

## Cube and spinner challenges

Level Two
Statistics
Units of Work
In this unit we play several games based on coloured cubes and spinners. The purpose is to investigate chance and think about the concept of a fair game.
• Recognise that not all things occur with the same likelihood.
• Observe that some things are fairer than others.
• Explore adjusting the rules of games to make them fairer.
