# Mathematics

## Proficiencies

**Understanding **includes connecting names, numerals and quantities and partitioning numbers in various ways.

**Fluency** includes counting number in sequences readily forward and backwards, locating numbers on a line and naming the days of the week.

**Problem Solving** includes using materials to model authentic problems, giving and receiving directions to unfamiliar places, and using familiar counting sequences to solve unfamiliar problems and discussing the reasonableness of the answer.

**Reasoning **includes explaining direct and indirect comparisons of length using uniform informal units, justifying representations of data and explaining patterns that have been created.

## Achievement Standard

By the end of the year students are expected to:

**Number and Algebra**

- count to and from 100 and locate these numbers on a number line;
- partition numbers using place value and carry out simple additions and subtractions, using counting strategies;
- recognise Australian coins according to their value;
- identify representations of one half and one quarter;
- describe number sequences resulting from skip counting by 2s, 5s and 10s;
- continue simple patterns involving numbers and objects with and without the use of digital technology.

**Measurement and Geometry**

- use informal units of measurement to order objects based on length and capacity;
- tell time to the half-hour and explain time duration;
- describe two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional objects;
- use the language of distance and direction to move from place to place.

**Statistics and Probability**

- describe data displays;
- ask questions to collect data and draw simple data displays;
- classify outcomes of simple familiar events.
