Learning Continuum of Numeracy

This element involves students learning about measurement of length, area, volume, capacity, time and mass.

Students estimate, measure, compare and calculate using metric units when solving problems in authentic contexts. They read clocks and convert between time systems, identify and sequence dates and events using a calendar and use timetables for a variety of purposes. In developing and acting with numeracy, students:

  • estimate and measure with metric units
  • operate with clocks, calendars and timetables.

Level 1b

Typically by the end of Foundation Year, students:

Estimate and measure with metric units

measure by comparing objects and indicate if these measurements are the same or different

Operate with clocks calendars and timetables

sequence familiar actions and events using the everyday language of time
