# Food and wellbeing: Mathematics

### Mathematics

The Australian Curriculum addresses learning about food and wellbeing predominantly in Health and Physical Education (HPE) and Design and Technologies, however there are opportunities to make connections with aspects of Mathematics, particularly Measurement and geometry and Statistics and probability.

• describing the duration of familiar situations such as ‘how long is it until we next come to school?

Statistics and probability

Data representation and interpretation

Content descriptions with elaborations

Choose simple questions and gather responses and make simple inferences (ACMSP262)

• determining questions which will gather appropriate responses for a simple investigation

Represent data with objects and drawings where one object or drawing represents one data value. Describe the displays (ACMSP263)

• understanding one-to-one correspondence
• describing displays by identifying categories with the greatest or least number of objects

Year 2

Measurement and geometry

Using units of measurement

Content descriptions with elaborations

Name and order months and seasons (ACMMG040)

• investigating the seasons used by Aboriginal people, comparing them to those used in Western society and recognising the connection to weather patterns

Statistics and probability

Data representation and interpretation

Content descriptions with elaborations

Identify a question of interest based on one categorical variable. Gather data relevant to the question (ACMSP048)

• carrying out a survey to identify types of waste/rubbish created at school by collecting and categorising rubbish types, such as A4 photocopy paper
• determining the variety of birdlife in the playground and using a prepared table to record observations

Collect, check and classify data (ACMSP049)

• recognising the usefulness of tally marks
• identifying categories of data and using them to sort data

Create displays of data using lists, table and picture graphs and interpret them (ACMSP050)

• creating picture graphs to represent data using one-to-one correspondence
• comparing the usefulness of different data displays
