Late level 4 plan (term 3)

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. Integers

Level Four
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
This unit helps students to develop procedural fluency with integers and have conceptual understanding of integers in the real world.
• Understand everyday application of integers.
• Add and subtract positive and negative integers.
• Use models to explain why subtraction of a negative integer has a positive effect. Getting partial to percentages

Level Four
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
This unit supports students to recognise percentages as equivalent fractions, and to carry out simple calculations involving finding percentages of amounts.
• Use the percentage bar model to find the percentage that a part is of a whole.
• Use the percentage bar model to find a percentage amount of a whole.
• Simplify parts of a whole to common fractions to find percentages.
• Use percentages to represent the relationship between two different wholes... Solid Understanding

Level Four
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
In this unit students make and investigate various solids, including regular and semi-regular polyhedra, and cylinders and cones. They look for patterns in the numbers of faces, edges and vertices they see whether they can “discover” Euler’s famous formula. By truncating the vertices of the Platonic...
• Construct models of polyhedra using construction materials, like geoshapes or polydrons.
• Use the terms faces, edges and vertices to describe models of polyhedral and look for relationships between these features.
• Anticipate the features of the solid created when a Platonic solid is truncated... Getting partial: Multiplying decimals

Level Four
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
This unit requires students to apply their number sense about the size of decimals to estimate and calculate the product of decimal fractions. In doing so they generalise about the effect of multiplying and dividing by ten and one hundred.
• Express a multiplication of two decimals as a product of fractions, e.g. 0.4 x 0.7 as 4/10 x 7/10 = 28/100.
• Connect the product of the two fractions to the decimal answer, e.g. 28/100 = 0.28.
• Know the effect of multiplying and dividing a decimal number by ten or one hundred.
• Use... Cubic Conundrums

Level Four
Integrated
This unit provides a set of learning tasks that integrate across the strands of the Mathematics and Statistics learning area of the New Zealand Curriculum and provide opportunities for assessment of student achievement across those strands. Each session may involve more than one lesson, especially...

Session One
Use systematic approaches to find all the possible outcomes, e.g. tree diagrams, organised lists.

Session Two
Use tables, graphs, and word rules to represent growing patterns.

Session Three
Draw cube models using plan views.

Session Four
Draw cube models using isometric...
