# Late level 3 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.

## Fill it up - flat space

Level Three
Integrated
Units of Work
This integrated unit combines measurement of area with multiplication, and algebraic thinking.

## Starting from Scratch

Level Three
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
In this unit students use a digital programming platform, Scratch, to learn about polygons, and use the language of direction and distance.
1. Create a programme in Scratch for a Sprite to walk out a shape or figure, including:
• Correct numbers of steps
• Correct angles
• Use of repetition
• Use of blocks
• Use of variables and operators
2. Read a programme in Scratch and work out the path that the Sprite will take

## Eggs and a little bacon

Level Three
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
This unit explores situations that involve multiplication and division using an equal sets model. Students learn to apply the properties of whole numbers under multiplication, to derive new answers from basic facts, and apply inverse operations to division.
• Derive from basic multiplication facts to solve multiplication problems with equal sets.
• Apply the commutative and distributive properties of multiplication to solve problems mentally and on paper.
• Recognise how both measurement and sharing division problems can be solved by ‘building up’ with...

## What's in the bag?

Level Three
Statistics
Units of Work
In this unit we experiment with cubes to make predictions about likelihood based on our observations. Students find out that with probabilistic situations there is no certain way to predict exactly what will happen.
• Make predictions based on data collected.
• Identify all possible outcomes of an event.
• Assign probabilities to simple events using fractions (1/2, 1/6 etc).

## Matariki - Level 3

Level Three
Integrated
Units of Work
This unit consists of mathematical learning, at Level 3 of the New Zealand Curriculum, focused around celebrations of Matariki, the Māori New Year. The sessions provide meaningful contexts that highlight Māori culture and provide powerful learning opportunities that connect different strands of...

Session One

• Recognise a trapezium, right angled triangle, and points in a straight line, in different orientations.
• Construct a model of all the possible outcomes for rolling a standard dice and use the model to predict the results of an experiment.

Session Two

• Find the next shape in a tukutuku pattern...
