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 3

Typically by the end of Year 4, students:

Estimate and measure with metric units

estimate, measure and compare the length, temperature, volume, capacity and mass of everyday objects using metric units and scaled instruments

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
