Week 6 Term 3


  • Show understanding by creating a detailed show-me of your learning.
  • Show problem solving by applying your learning to some worded problems.
  • Show fluency by using appropriate units of measurement and mathematical instruments when solving problems. And by using estimation to check your answers.
  • Create your own worded problems on your topic for yourself and others to solve.
  • Show reasoning by explaining the strategies you used to solve problems.
  • Show understanding by planning and conducting a workshop on your topic, use the questions you have written within your workshop.
  • Show reasoning and understanding by relating your topic to the real world, what examples and problems can you find. Post this on your blog.




  • Create a representative sample experiment/event that will have equally likely outcomes to a larger set of data. This could be within your Big Idea investigation.
  • Assign probabilities to the outcomes of events and determine probabilities for events.


Data representation and interpretation

  • Construct and compare a range of data displays including stem-and-leaf plots and dot plots. This could be within your Big Idea investigation.
  • Calculate and describe mean, median, mode and range for sets of data. Interpret these statistics in the context of data. This could be within your Big Idea investigation.


ABS – Migration graphs and activities (assignment format)

Using units of measurement


  • Investigate and demonstrate using concrete materials the formulas for areas of rectangles, triangles and parallelograms and use these in problem solving.
  • Calculate volumes of rectangular prisms and other polyhedra. Can you make predictions about the likely volume of a polyhedra. Example.. comparing the volume of two polyhedra.




  • Investigate and draw different views of prisms and solids formed from combinations of prisms.


Location and transformation


  • Describe translations, reflections in an axis, and rotations of multiples of 90°. Identify line and rotational symmetries.


Geometric reasoning


  • Identify corresponding, alternate and co-interior angles when two straight lines are crossed by a transversal.
  • Investigate conditions for two lines to be parallel and solve simple numerical problems using reasoning.
  • Investigate and prove what the angle sum of a triangle is? Use this to find the angle sum of a quadrilateral.
  • Classify triangles according to their side and angle properties and describe quadrilaterals.
