Maths in Year 1 is a vibrant program where we encourage students to verbalize their thinking about how they solve a problem and how they relate Maths to everyday life. Discussing our strategies is a major focus of our lessons. Gradually we learn to recognise and select the most efficient strategies. The fun we have in learning the process is just as important as the answer itself!

In Term 4 our topics include:

*Develop confidence with number sequences to and from 100 by ones from any starting point. Skip count by twos, fives and tens starting from zero

*Count collections to 100 by partitioning numbers using place value

*Recognise, model, read, write and order numbers to at least 100. Locate these numbers on a number line

*Recognise, and describe one half as one of two equal parts of a whole

*Recognize, describe and order Australian coins according to their value

*Skip counting by 2/s, 5's and 10's starting from 0

*Investigating patterns with objects and numbers

*Addition

*Ordinal number

*Represent practical situations that model as sharing

Measurement and Geometry

*Measure and compare the lengths, masses and capacities of pairs of objects using uniform informal units

*Tell time to the half hour

*Give and follow directions to familiar locations

Statistics and Probability

*Represent data with objects and drawings where one object or drawing represents one data value. Describe the displays

*Choose simple questions and gather responses
