Modules - Number

Level 1       Level 2       Level 3       Level 4       Level 5       Level 6

Level 1 is Years 5-7, Level 6 Years 11-12.

The Number strand is treated in a fairly conventional way. The emphasis is on students developing number sense and a range of methods and short cuts for computation.

Visual conception of fractions is promoted before symbolic manipulation. The visual approach is more amenable to students developing their own methods and short cuts and, once concepts have been gained, they are less likely to be forgotten.
