### Patterns Year 2 - Calculate

The focus of this activity is on patterns and algorithmic thinking. The lesson aims to encourage students to explore problems with limited assistance from the teacher. Although the teacher asks questions and can prompt learning, the students will investigate the problem using their own strategies.

### Representing Patterns - Calculate

In this activity, students examine the representation of patterns, including as diagrams, charts and formulas.

### Transformations Year 3 & 4 - Calculate

This lesson helps students explore different shape transformations and describe symmetry in objects and images.

### Whisper Whisper Loud - Calculate

This game explores number sequences and practises skip counting.

### Pattern & Algebra Year 1 - Calculate

The focus of this activity is to discover if students can use their knowledge of repeating patterns created with objects and extend this to number patterns. It is important to remember to ask students to continue patterns to the right and left. This is important as students need to be able to count forwards and backwards.

### Work sample Year 1 Mathematics: Equilateral triangles

This work sample demonstrates evidence of student learning in relation to aspects of the achievement standards for Year 1 Mathematics. The primary purpose for the work sample is to demonstrate the standard, so the focus is on what is evident in the sample not how it was created. The sample is an authentic representation ...

### Pattern & Algebra Foundation - Calculate

The focus of this activity is to discover if students can make, copy, continue and explain repeating patterns. Often students will only be asked to continue patterns to the right, but ensure you ask students to continue patterns to the left. Like the number sequence a pattern can extend in both directions.

### Patterns have something that repeats over and over and over again: K–2 Year A – Unit 12

This sample unit develops student knowledge, understanding, and skills in patterning.

### The Mathscots: Biscuit Patterns

In this animated video, Prime thinks about repeating patterns when Biscuit the Pug visits. The mathematical focus is on creating and describing patterns using materials, sounds, action and drawings; extending patterns left and right using materials and drawings; identifying which part of the pattern is being repeated (unit ...

### New shapes can be made by joining or partitioning existing shapes: K–2 Year A – Unit 5

New shapes can be made by joining (combining) or partitioning (breaking apart) existing shapes – exploring two-dimensional shapes' attributes and features.

### Making Shapes (Foundation lesson) - Calculate

The focus of this activity is to encourage students to check their shape to ensure/prove that it is a hexagon. Students need to develop an understanding that good mathematicians find solutions to problems, check to see if their solution is correct and explain their thinking.

### Computational thinking in practice: parent and teacher cards: years F-2

This set of printable cards describe ways in which computational thinking can be applied when carrying out simple everyday tasks.

### The Manual: Butterfly Gardening in South Australia

This Manual assists teachers and students establish butterfly gardens in their schoolgrounds. It provides information about butterfly lifecycles, habitats, adaptations, and requirements to live. The manual also provides local Indigenous perspectives of butterflies, along with useful links to websites. The manual accompanies ...

This is a comprehensive education package based on of the world's most exciting ecological restoration projects that is happening right now in Western Australia! It features interactive virtual tours, 3D skulls, videos, real-action inquiry projects, research projects, native animal educational card games and activities, ...

### Pattern hunt

Students copy, describe and continue simple repeating patterns.

### Pattern pursuit

Students identify, describe and create repeating patterns.

### The Mathscots: Making Biscuit Patterns

In this animated video, Prime the puppy and Abacus the cat have fun making repeating patterns using 2 dimensional shapes. The mathematical focus is on recognising, copying, continuing and creating repeating patterns based on the attributes and properties of 2 dimensional shapes and the quantity of elements in the pattern ...

### Adaptive Speciation of Honeybees - Calculate

Using the example of the humble honey bee, this integrated Science and Mathematics unit illustrates the way in which speciation occurs in nature and explains how living things adapt to survive in their environment. In doing so, the unit describes the nature of simple multiplicative number sequences and how simple algebraic ...

### Objects can be sorted and classified in different ways: K–2 Year A – Unit 19

This two-week unit develops student knowledge, understanding and skills with two-dimensional (2D) shapes, three-dimensional (3D) objects and volume.

### Patterns have something that repeats over and over and over again: K-2 Year A – Unit 2

Patterns have something that repeats over and over and over again – this unit provides an opportunity to further develop students’ knowledge, skills and understanding of patterns.
