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!

This term 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

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

*Represent and solve simple addition and subtraction problems using a range of strategies including counting on, partitioning and rearranging parts

Recognise, describe and order Australian coins according to their value

*Investigate and describe number patterns formed by skip counting and patterns with objects

Measurement and Geometry

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

*Tell time to the half-hour

*Describe duration using months, weeks, days and hours

*Recognise and classify familiar two dimensional shapes and three dimensional objects using obvious features

*Give and follow directions to familiar locations

Statistics and Probability

*Identify outcomes of familiar events involving chance and describe them using everyday language such as ‘will happen’, ‘won’t happen’ or ‘might happen’

*Choose simple questions and gather responses

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