ABLEWA Stage B

The proficiency strands Understanding, Fluency, Problem Solving and Reasoning are an integral part of the mathematics content across the three content strands: Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, Statistics and Probability. The proficiencies reinforce the significance of working mathematically within the content and describe how the content is explored or developed. They provide the language to build in the developmental aspects of the learning of mathematics.

At this stage:

Understanding develops throughparticipating in a variety of everyday activities that involve objects, events and number

Fluency includes following regular routines, and matching objects using a repertoire of responses

Problem Solvingincludes students attending to, exploring and sorting objects in the world around them

Reasoningincludes manipulating and playing with objects to develop links between their immediate environment, everyday language and mathematical activity.

Number and Algebra

Number and place value

Use number names ‘one’, ‘two’ and ‘three’ in sequence to count in everyday situations (ACMNA001b)

Correspond ‘one’ with a single object (ACMNA002b)

Explore the concept of ‘none’, ‘one’ and ‘more’ (ACMNA003b)

Make comparison between items using appropriate language such as ‘same’ or ‘different’ (ACMNA289b)

Participate in everyday situations involving ‘adding’ and ‘taking away’ (ACMNA004b)

Patterns and algebra

Participate in the comparing of objects, using language such as ‘same’ and ‘different’ (ACMNA005b)

Measurement and Geometry

Using units of measurement

Compare objects using direct comparison (ACMMG006b)

Recognise and participate in familiar events that happen on a daily basis (ACMMG007b)

Participate in regular daily events (ACMMG008b)

Shape

Identify when two shapes or objects are the same sort or not (ACMMG009b)

Location and transformation

Respond to a simple statement about location or direction (ACMMG010b)

Statistics and Probability

Data representation and interpretation

Participate in data collection (ACMSP011b)

Achievement standard

Number and Algebra

Students participate in everyday activities that involve numbers and counting, comparing groups of objects, and pattern activities. Students can rote count to three. Students identify ‘one’ and ‘lots’ of objects and show an understanding of ‘more’ in familiar situations. They manipulate objects and build a tall tower by using ‘more’ blocks and take blocks away from a tower to make the tower ‘less’ tall.

Measurement and Geometry

Students participate in everyday activities that explore measurement and use measurement attributes in practical situations. Students demonstrate beginning understanding of basic measurement concepts such as ‘long or short’, ‘heavy or light’,

They explore routine events and show an awareness of time and daily routines by responding to a routine signal from the teacher, such as, ‘It’s time to go outside and play’, ‘pack up’, or ‘unpack bag’

They demonstrate an awareness of object permanence by searching for objects that have been hidden and participate in class activities that explore three-dimensional objects. They can match identical familiar three-dimensional shapes that are ‘the same’. Students respond to specific instructions relating to manipulating the movement and location of self and objects.

Statistics and Probability They participate in class activities that explore object, events and displaying information. They develop an awareness of chance by playing with materials or objects that involve cause and effect (actions that will happen) and playing games where the outcome is unpredictable, for example, peekaboo. Students respond to a simple pictorial representation of their activities related to a short time-frame.
