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.
Typically by the end of Year 4, students:
Estimate and measure with metric units
Operate with clocks calendars and timetables
read digital and analogue clocks to the minute, convert between hours and minutes, use 'am' and 'pm', and use calendars to locate and compare time events
