Learning Continuum of Numeracy (Version 8.4)

Page 3 of 3

This element involves students making sense of the space around them.

Students visualise, identify and sort shapes and objects, describing their key features in the environment. They use symmetry, shapes and angles to solve problems in authentic contexts and interpret maps and diagrams, using scales, legends and directional language to identify and describe routes and locations. In developing and acting with numeracy, students:

  • visualise 2D shapes and 3D objects
  • interpret maps and diagrams.

Level 6

Typically by the end of Year 10, students:

Visualise 2D shapes and 3D objects

visualise, describe and analyse the way shapes and objects are combined and positioned in the environment for different purposes

Interpret maps and diagrams

create and interpret maps, models and diagrams using a range of mapping tools
