Learning Continuum of Numeracy (Version 8.4)

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 2

Typically by the end of Year 2, students:

Estimate and measure with metric units

estimate, measure and order using direct and indirect comparisons and informal units to collect and record information about shapes and objects

Operate with clocks calendars and timetables

read digital and analogue clocks to the half and quarter hour, sequence events by months and seasons and identify a date on a calendar
