Late level 3 plan (term 1)

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.

Level Three
Integrated
Units of Work
This unit seeks to connect learning outcomes, and provide problem solving opportunities across all five content strands, number, geometry, statistics, algebra, and measurement. The context of houses is used to develop concepts such as drawing and modelling 3-dimensional objects, using co-ordinate...
  • Draw a diagram showing the top, side, front, and back of a solid figure.
  • Make the net for a solid figure.
  • Use co-ordinates on a map to identify the position of houses.
  • Construct triangles and quadrilaterals by measuring appropriate lengths, and identify the properties of the shapes.
  • Find...

Level Three
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
This unit builds students’ understanding of place value, extending to 6 digit whole numbers.
  • Understand the structure of 6 digit whole numbers.
  • Read and write six digit whole numbers.
  • Represent numbers up to 999 999 using place value equipment

Level Three
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
In this unit students use street maps as the context to learn about coordinates and grid references, and for giving and following instructions involving directions and distances.
  • Find and describe the location of an object using co-ordinates and grid references.
  • Follow and give directions involving turns (left and right), compass directions (N, S, E, W).
  • Follow and give instructions involving distances by interpreting simple scales

Level Three
Number and Algebra
This unit of work investigates how relational thinking is applied to multiplication and division.
  • Use relational thinking as a basis for a range of number strategies.
  • Explain number strategies using materials and diagrams.

Level Three
Statistics
Units of Work
In this unit we investigate the amount of water contained in a carrot and we use a time series graph to plot the "weight" of the carrot as the water in the carrot evaporates. The students also pose their own carrot investigative questions.
  • Plan a statistical investigation using the PPDAC cycle.
  • Choose an appropriate data display (bar graph, dot plot, time series graph).
  • Make statements about the findings of the investigation.

Level Three
Statistics
Units of Work
In this unit, using our fridge as the context, we collect data and present these as dot plots and bar graphs. We start to learn about using the computer to display our data.
  • Plan a statistical investigation.
  • Display data in dot plots, strip graphs and bar charts.
  • Discuss features of data display using middle, spread, and outliers.
