Foundation Statement strands

The following strands are covered in this activity:

  • Working Mathematically
    Students ask questions and use objects, diagrams and technology to explore mathematical problems. They link mathematical ideas and use everyday language, some mathematical language and diagrams to explain how answers were obtained.
  • Measurement and Data
    Students estimate, measure, compare and record using informal units for length, area, volume, capacity and mass. They recognise the need for formal units of length and use the metre and centimetre to measure length and distance. Students use a calendar to identify the date and name and order the months and the seasons of the year. They use informal units to compare and order the duration of events and tell the time on the half-hour. Students gather, organise, display and interpret data using column and picture graphs.
