# Late level 4 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.

Level Four
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
This unit supports students to understand angles as a turn relationship between two rays, and to apply their understanding in sport and design settings.
• Identify angles in the environment.
• Measure an angle using a protractor.
• Use angles to travel at a bearing.
• Anticipate the path of a ball as it bounces off a wall.
• Use rotational symmetry to create a logo.

## You can count on squares!

Level Four
Integrated
Units of Work
This unit requires students to form generalisations about the areas of triangles and quadrilaterals. Through exploring the geometry of three and four-sided polygons, students look for relationships that can be expressed algebraically. At this level it is sufficient for the students to express these...
• Explore the relationship between rows and columns in finding the areas of rectangles.
• Calculate the area of rectangles, parallelograms, and triangles.

## How much bullying?

Level Four
Statistics
Units of Work
This unit requires students to look at the reported state of bullying in New Zealand schools and to develop and administer their own surveys about bullying. They analyse their data and create a report outlining the results of their investigation.
• Critically explore the validity of claims based on data.
• Evaluate the quality of survey questions that are developed by others.
• Create survey questions that align to an investigative question.
• Administer a survey, collate, and display the data, and report findings.

## Spaced Out

Level Four
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
This unit explores the volume (in cubic units) of skyscraper constructions. Students investigate the most efficient way to pack cuboids in a confined space, and the relationship between millilitres and cubic centimetres
• Use a formula to calculate the volume of cuboids by measuring the length of each of the three dimensions.
• Investigate the relationship between millilitres and cubic centimetres.

## Matariki - Level 4

Level Four
Integrated
Units of Work
This unit explores a variety of mathematical ideas, at Level 4 of the New Zealand Curriculum, in the context of Matariki. Matariki is a significant event in the New Zealand calendar and is celebrated in many schools. Matariki is an opportunity to engage in activities such as storytelling, astronomy...

Session One

• Recognise that the properties of a figure stay constant as the figure is rotated (turned).
• Use compass directions to locate objects.
• Represent the relationship between numeric variables using tables and graphs.

Session Two

• Collect, sort and display multivariate data to find patterns and...
