# Late level 4 plan (term 4)

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. ## Time zones

Level Four
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
This unit introduces and explores 24-hour time and time zones.
• Read and use a variety of timetables and charts.
• Perform calculations with time, including 24-hour clock times and conversions between time zones. ## X Marks the Spot

Level Four
Geometry and Measurement
Units of Work
This unit uses games and puzzles to explore coordinate systems and their uses. The students are given the opportunity to invent their own systems by locating counters on a sheet of paper and by finding the dead centre of a set of objects. The Cartesian and polar coordinate systems are used to locate...
• Use Cartesian and polar coordinates to describe the position of an object.
• Find the location of an object using Cartesian or polar coordinates. ## Flip and roll

Level Four
Statistics
Units of Work
The unit looks at, analyses, and extends, a game of chance in which three coins are tossed. A player wins if two heads and a tail come up.
• Calculate the theoretical probability of an event by finding all the possible outcomes.
• Use more than one way to find a theoretical probability.
• Check theoretical probabilities using trials.
• Identify what a fair game is and how to make an unfair game fair. ## What's going on? Fractions

Level Four
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
This unit develops students’ recognition of pattern (consistency) in equations involving equivalence, addition and multiplication of fractions.
• Describe and represent the addition of fractions with like and unlike denominators.
• Describe and represent why two or more different fractions can represent the same quantity (equivalence).
• Describe and represent how improper fractions can be renamed as mixed numbers (whole number and fraction).
• Find... ## Choices

Level Four
Number and Algebra
Units of Work
This unit is about making best option decisions in real-life situations based on cost. Common examples of such decisions are explored, including the cost of taxis, cooking times, hire cars, and mobile phones.
• Calculate the cost of hiring a taxi, hiring a car, and using a phone, and the cooking time for meat.
• Compare the costs of different plans.
• Represent linear relationships using graphs.
• Use graphs to make decisions about the best deal.
