Number and Algebra

2.OA.1.1
Number and place value
• Investigate number sequences, initially those increasing and decreasing by twos, threes, fives and tens from any starting point, then moving to other sequences

 recognising there are different ways of representing numbers and identifying patterns going beyond 100
 developing fluency with writing numbers in meaningful contexts
• Group, partition and rearrange collections up to 1000 in hundreds, tens and ones to facilitate more efficient counting
 using an abacus to model and represent numbers
 understanding threedigit numbers as comprised of hundreds, tens and ones/units
 demonstrating and using models such as linking blocks, sticks in bundles, placevalue blocks and Aboriginal bead strings and explaining reasoning
• Explore the connection between addition and subtraction
 becoming fluent with partitioning numbers to understand the connection between addition and subtraction
 using counting on to identify the missing element in an additive problem
• Solve simple addition and subtraction problems using a range of efficient mental and written strategies
 becoming fluent with a range of mental strategies for addition and subtraction problems, such as commutativity for addition, building to 10, doubles, 10 facts and adding 10
 modelling and representing simple additive situations using materials such as 10 frames, 20 frames and empty number lines
• Recognise and represent multiplication as repeated addition, groups and arrays
 representing array problems with available materials and explaining reasoning
 visualising a group of objects as a unit and using this to calculate the number of objects in several identical groups
• Recognise and represent division as grouping into equal sets and solve simple problems using these representations
 dividing the class or a collection of objects into equalsized groups
 identifying the difference between dividing a set of objects into three equal groups and dividing the same set of objects into groups of three

Measurement and Geometry

2.MD.1.1
Using units of measurement
• Compare and order several shapes and objects based on length, area, volume and capacity using appropriate uniform informal units
 comparing lengths using finger length, hand span or a piece of string
 comparing areas using the palm of the hand or a stone
 comparing capacities using a range of containers
• Compare masses of objects using balance scales
 using balance scales to determine whether the mass of different objects is more, less or about the same, or to find out how many marbles are needed to balance a tub of margarine or a carton of milk
• Tell time to the quarterhour, using the language of 'past' and 'to'
 describing the characteristics of quarterpast times on an analogue clock, and identifying that the small hand is pointing just past the number and the big hand is pointing to the three
• Name and order months and seasons
 investigating the seasons used by Aboriginal people, comparing them to those used in Western society and recognising the connection to weather patterns.
• Use a calendar to identify the date and determine the number of days in each month
 using calendars to locate specific information, such as finding a given date on a calendar and saying what day it is, and identifying personally or culturally specific days
