Numeracy

Term 3
Numeracy: Basic Facts and Proportions/Ratios

In Korimako we will be having a big push on the basic facts - using the brick wall to set targets again for students.  In the Fractions/Decimals/Percentages the students will be working with numbers between 1 and 0.  The students will link visual pictures with the corresponding numbers.

Roberland Group:
Students will be working with Miss Roberts to improve their basic facts and number knowledge. They will also be working with Mr Sutherland to develop their proportions and ration (fractions) knowledge.

Additionally students will be working on Maths Buddy.

Term 2 
Numeracy: Multiplication/Division and Measurement 

Students will be learning a number of strategies to use when needing to multiply and divide numbers.
Their learning pathways may include:
- Know a range of multiplication and division strategies
- Solve word problems effectively by picking out what we need in order to solve it
- Use basic fact knowledge to help solve the problems
- Identifying features of 2D and 3D shapes

Book Numeracy Group (Combination of Mr Cook & Miss Burtenshaw)
This term we will be teaching a variety of multiplication and division strategies. These will include - Multiply and divide by 10, 100 and 1000 including decimals - Tidy Numbers - Place Value - Double and Half - Standard Written Form (SWF) - Divisibility Rules
The students completed a test and have been given their Next Step Learning. They are to opt into the workshops being run by the teachers and complete a weekly timetable of what they have done over the course of the week. We are very excited about running this numeracy as the students have been given the opportunity to be self managed and in charge of their own learning. The teachers will help any student that needs guidance around how to manage their learning time wisely.

Roberland Numeracy Group (Combination of Miss Roberts and Mr Sutherland)
The focus for this term is to develop our Multiplication and Division skills. Students will be working on:
- using their family of facts
- skip counting
- using known facts

An example of these strategies would be:
Billy earns $6 per day he works. If he worked everyday of a week, how much would he earn that week?
Equation: 6 x 7
- using their family of facts I know that the answer is 42 because 42 ÷ 6 = 7, 42 ÷ 7 = 6 and 7 x 6 = 42
- skip counting I know that the answer is 42 because I skip counted 7, 14, 21, 28, 35 then 42.
- using known facts I know the answer is 42 because 5 x 7 = 35, so all I need to do is add one more group of 7 to make 42

 Term 1 
Numeracy: Addition/Subtraction and Basic Facts 

Students will be developing their speed of recall of basic facts and their addition and subtraction strategies. Their learning pathways may include:
- Complete as many bricks as possible
- Basic facts up to 20 Solve 2 or 3 digit problems
- Using decimals in order to solve problems
