Unit outline
Students apply a variety of mathematical concepts in real-life, lifelike and purely mathematical situations through the three strands and relevant sub-stands of the Australian Curriculum: Number and Algebra - Number and Place Value, Money and Financial Mathematics and Patterns and Algebra Measurement and Geometry - Using Units of Measure, Shape and Location and Transformation Statistics and Probability Data Representation and Interpretation

Through-out the unit, students will: Order objects based on lengths and capacities using informal units of measure. Collect data by asking questions and draw simple data displays. Distinguish between size and value of Australian money and interact with monetary transactions. Name and classify 2D and 3D shapes and create decorations with 3D nets Skip count in twos, fives and tens starting at zero Locate numbers on a number line Describe number patterns formed by skip counting

The big ideas of the unit include: The process of measurement involves comparing an attribute of an object with a unit of measure that has the same attribute Comparing is a form of measurement It is essential to build estimation skills Estimation skills are used in daily life The use of non-standard units is important to developing measurement sense. Non-standard units of measurements must be uniform Making meaningful measurements and estimating measurements both depend upon a personal fluency with the unit of measurement being used Measuring skills are essential to successful numerate behaviour in managing day-to-day situations

Data can be collected, organised and displayed to answer questions and convey particular messages A graph will show information or answer a question more clearly and easily than a response sheet Simple questions that give yes/no answers are used for the information presented in a picture graph A picture graph is one where a single picture represents a single response and shows the object in question Representing categorical data in a graph (picture graph) Interpreting picture graphs Investigating data in a context (planning a school disco) Investigate similarities and differences between Australian coins and notes. Understand their properties Use 100 block poster to visualise the value of each coin Skip counting in 5s and 10s to see the value of the coins increase Skip counting adding values to get to bigger value Grouping coins to make equivalent value. Use dots in simplistic way. Adding dots together to get bigger equivalent amount of dots Students interact with monetary transactions with their own plastic money. Students to comprehend value of money Create a tuck shop price list displaying the price in coins Name 2D shapes and identify their properties in song-a-long song Draw 2D shapes with individual whiteboards (listen for clues of shape) Classify 2D shapes in labelled hoops and justify using properties Name 3D shapes using catchy rhyme and search in class for examples Compare 2D and 3D shapes. 3D shapes comprise of many 2D shapes Cut and build 3D nets as decorations for school disco Develop confidence with number sequences to and from 100 Skip count by twos starting at zero Skip count by fives starting at zero Skip count by tens starting at zero Recognise numbers to at least 100 Read numbers to at least 100 Write numbers to at least 100 Order numbers to at least 100 Locate numbers on a number line (up to 100) Investigate number patterns formed by skip counting Investigate patterns with objects Describe number patterns formed by skip counting Describe patterns with objects

Data Representation and Interpretation


Data Data is a collection of information gathered by observation, questioning or measurement. It is often organized in graphs or charts for analysis and may include facts, numbers or measurements. More, less, fewer, greater. Information that can be grouped by similar characteristics. Through the use of concrete objects an object graph will show information or answer a question more clearly than a tally or response sheet. Picture graphs show us that a single picture represents a single response and depicts the item in question

Lesson 1: Data representation and interpretation Asking Questions to collect data. Introduction: Explain to students that over the coming weeks they are going to be extending our knowledge about data representation by learning about the types of questions we can ask to gather information for different math investigations and how we can display our information in tables and graphs. Diagnostic Assessment 1: Assess prior knowledge from earlier units of work prep year. Discuss vocabulary. Introduce students to the summative assessment task. Use explicit teaching to introduce students to the objective of the lesson: to use bears to make an object graph. Introduction Use plastic bears to demonstrate to students a number of groups they could be divided into. Articulate some examples of possible groups. Explain to students the object graph will show us which group of bears has the most in it without having to count the number in the group. Body: Students divide their bears into various groups. Call on students to demonstrate and articulate some of the group characteristics they have chosen. Explain the layout of the object graph to the students bear pictures at the bottom of each column - identify the colour groups and their labels. Ask students to group their bears per the colour groups Demonstrate to students how to place the bears on the object graph in their colour have a student come and demonstrate for the class. Ask students to read the colour words and place all the red bears in the red bear column on their object graph. Have students place the remaining bears on their object graph Compare the number of bears in each group by discussing the length of the columns made by each group on the graph students answers will vary. Conclusion: Explain and demonstrate how to fill out the focus questions to be answered

Body: Guide students to answer the question yes/no by collecting a yes or no card then forming a line behind either yes or no Translate the students human graph into a picture graph set out on white board Model including a title and labels on the graph Conclusion: Have students draw conclusions about the yes/no picture graph Literacy: - have students write a statement about the information given on the graph (e.g. more children have had their birthday this year.) Lesson 3: Creating a simple table to record data Introduction: Revise comparative language: more, less, greater, fewer Revise, brainstorm and decide on a simple yes/no answer (e.g. do you have a pet?) Body: Model for students how to create a simple table to collect their data include the question and two columns with the labels yes and no. Tick for yes or cross for no. Translate the table into a picture graph Conclusion: Have students draw conclusions about the data on the picture graph with a partner to answer questions (e.g. Do more people have or not have a pet?) then write a sentence using comparative language of more, less, greater, fewer (e.g. more people have a pet.)

Discuss with students the different categories their shoes could fall into. List the categories (e.g. laces, Velcro, slip on and sandal) Create an object graph on the carpet out of masking tape to mark out columns and spaces for the graph label the columns with categories of shoes and give the graph a title (e.g. Types of shoes) Have students place their shoe in the appropriate column on the graph As a whole class use the object graph to ask and answer questions (e.g. are there more shoes with Velcro or laces? How can you tell? If you owned a shop, what type of shoes would you sell? Why Conclusion: Translate the object graph into a picture graph. In pairs students pose and answer questions about the graph Lesson 7: Representing categorical data in a graph Introduction: Revise with students the similarities and differences of yes/no picture graphs and representing categorical data in a picture graph Discuss with students a simple question and some possible answers (e.g. what is your favourite party game: pin the tail on the donkey, musical chairs, pass the parcel and egg

Use feedback
ways to monitor learning and assessment Monitoring student learning Student learning should be monitored throughout the teaching and learning process to determine student progress and leaning needs. Each lesson provides opportunities to gather evidence about how students are progressing and what the need to learn next. Specific monitoring opportunities include: Observation Record on student observation checklist and collate photographic evidence. Collect information throughout lesson 2 & 3 regarding students understanding of: The size of the object directly relates to capacity and length.

Consultation Consult with students about the language use to describe comparisons of the length of an object and how much a container holds. Provide specific verbal feedback Samples of student work Check student understanding and provide feedback using: Feedback to students The sheet Volume report to monitor the possible misconception that the tallest container always hold the most The sheet Properties of 2D shapes to monitor the students ability to describe the features of 2D shapes.

Establish active feedback partnerships between students, teachers and parents to find out: How each student is going provide specific feedback to each student throughout Formative Assessments- Consultations & Worksheets verbal feedback, stickers etc. Provide feedback to students during lessons. Provide verbal feedback during activities and stickers for work samples.

Feedback may relate to misunderstanding and common misconceptions. In this unit this may include:

Measurement: Students may be distracted by the overall appearance of an object and think, for example, that the tallest container has the greatest capacity, or the biggest object is the heaviest. Money: Students may be distracted by size of coins, for example, the 50c has greater value than $1 coin, especially since 1 is smaller than 50. Shape: Students may be distracted by one side view in 3D shapes, for example, say that a sphere is a circle or a cube is a square.

Reflection on the unit plan

Reflection on the unit plan Use feedback to inform future teaching and learning. Identify what worked well during and at the end of the unit for future planning. Reflection will include: Activities that worked well and why Activities that could be improved and how Monitoring and assessment that worked well and why Monitoring and assessment that could be improved and how Common student misconception that need, or needed, to be clarified

Analysis of Feedback, Reflection and Student Assessment Results to Inform Future Planning Is the context for learning suitable for future student cohorts? How could the LEPs be modified to enhance student results? Which teaching and learning strategies are will be incorporated into future practice? Which Habits of Mind need fostering to improve learning? How can newly acquire knowledge and skills be expanded through cross curricular integration?

What do students know and need to know? Reflective Questions 1. Did the design of the unit successfully address the ILOs for all students? 2. Did the lesson plans provide suitable teaching strategies to cater for all learning styles? Who was advantaged/who was disadvantaged? What would you change next time? 3. Were the students engaged in the lessons? Were they designed to suitably reflect the interests of the students? 4. What lessons worked better than others and why? What would you modify 5. Did the lessons run to time? 6. Were the resources and task sheets/booklets used effective? What worked well/what didnt? What resources would facilitate st udent learning better?

7. Were the assessments tasks clear enough for students to understand and follow? Were they able to complete the assessment tasks
individually or did they require assistance from the teacher? Were there any intended learning outcomes that needed consolidation?
