# Late level 3 plan (term 4)

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.

## Slosh, Dribble, and Plop

Level Three
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
This unit helps students to understand the need for standard units of volume, and explores the context of trading with people on an imaginary island called Smati, where their measures are sloshes, dribbles, and plops.
• Recognise the need for a standard unit of volume.
• Estimate and measure to the nearest litre.
• Relate the litre to familiar everyday containers.

## Which graph?

Level Three
Statistics
Units of Work
In this unit students explore how bar graphs and pie graphs can show different aspects of the data. Bar graphs show the number differences between data categories and pie graphs can be used to clearly show proportional differences between data categories.
• Interpret information from graphs
• Make statements based on data shown on graphs
• Identify the most suitable graph to show survey results
• Construct graphs using digital tools (e.g. Microsoft Excel, Google Sheets)

## Cups and Cubes

Level Three
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
In this unit students explore the use of cups and counters as a model to analyse the effects of operations rather than focusing on specific numbers.
• Use a ‘cups and cubes’ model to describe and reoresent relationships
• Represent linear relationships using tables and graphs
• Demonstrate knowledge of inverse relationships by creating simple linear equations
• Apply knowledge of inverse operations to simplify relationships
• Find specific unknowns using...

## Getting the point

Level Three
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
This unit explores the relationships between decimals and whole numbers and fractions. A number of representations are used including double number lines, ratio tables and place value tables. The main objective is to link students’ knowledge of fractions with the decimal system.
• Represent fractions as decimals and vice versa.
• Explain why recurring decimals occur.
• Apply decimals to measurement contexts such as finding capacities.

## Polyhedra (3D shapes)

Level Three
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
In this unit students make and investigate a variety of polyhedra (3D objects) with a focus on making nets.
• Construct models of polyhedra using structured or everyday materials.
• Use the terms faces, edges and vertices to describe models of polyhedra.
