Australian Curriculum NUMERACY PROGRESSIONS Measurement and Geometry - Understanding units of measurement

These posters have been made to display the Numeracy Progressions of Measurement and Geometry - Understanding units of measurement.Use as a bump it up wall.Included:

• Posters of All Progressions for the sub strand - "Measurement and Geometry - Understanding units of measurement".
• Numbers in large circles for display of the levels.
• Individual checklist
• A one page class checklist.

This sub-element describes how a student becomes increasingly able to recognise attributes that can be measured and how units of measure are used and calculated. In making the transition from informal to formal units, a student attends to the structure of units used to measure, how they are assembled end-to-end, side-by-side or in layers without gaps or overlapping. The structure of the units gives rise to ways of calculating length, area and volume.

In dealing with mass and capacity, experience helps develop estimates associated with commonly available reference objects (a cupful in cooking or the mass of an egg). Developing standard and agreed units of measurement is critically vital in areas as diverse as medicine and trade.

The relationship between units of measurement is applied in ratios, rates and proportions as well as decimals and percentages.

Some students will communicate using augmentative and alternative communication strategies to demonstrate their numeracy skills. This may include digital technologies, sign language, braille, real objects, photographs and pictographs.

Successful teaching and learning to address student needs in relation to numeracy requires the teacher to have an understanding of where the student is now and where the student needs to go next in their numeracy development.

The National Numeracy Learning Progressions describe common pathways or developmental sequences for the acquisition of numeracy development. The progressions complement key learning outcomes of the Early Years Learning Framework – particularly that children are confident and involved learners and effective communicators.

The progressions provide a tool to:

• locate the numeracy development of students and identify the numeracy development that should follow
• The progressions do not describe what to teach; they provide a detailed map of how students become increasingly adept in particular aspects of literacy and numeracy development.
