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 4

Typically by the end of Year 6, students:

Estimate and measure with metric units

choose and use appropriate metric units for length, area, volume, capacity and mass to solve everyday problems

Operate with clocks calendars and timetables

convert between 12- and 24-hour systems to solve time problems, interpret and use timetables from print and digital sources
