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.



Everyone to complete survey on



  • List outcomes of a chance activity/event involving equally likely outcomes and represent probabilities of those outcomes using fractions.
  • Understand that a probability of something happening can range from 0 to 1.


Data Representation and interpretation

  • Pose questions and collect categorical or numerical data by observation or survey based on your Big Idea investigation.
  • Construct displays, including column graphs, dot plots and tables, appropriate for data type, with and without the use of digital technologies.
  • Describe and interpret different data sets in the context of your Big Idea investigation.


ABS – Probability and Making Predictions Games 


Demonstrate your Understandings

Task 1

Go to Google Earth and find the St Therese neighbourhood.

Zoom down to approximately a one-block area.

Within this area make a tally of the number of: cars, garages, sheds, pools, play equipment that you can see.

Then select another neighbourhood and make a tally of the same things in a one-block area.

Compare the two tallies using a visual display of this data and at least two-sentence summary on what you have found.

Key Questions: What can you tell about the area knowing the number of pieces of backyard play equipment?

What kind of display did you choose and why?

Task 2

Probability and data in the news.

Find, label and display as many pieces of data and probability information you can find in one newspaper.

Interpret three visual data displays taken from a newspaper. e.g. graphs, tallies, headlines

Pose your own data collecting task related to the newspaper and carry it out. Develop a workshop highlighting your successful task.

Post your task on the padlet below:

Data in the news

Created with Padlet

Using units of measurement


  • Choose appropriate units of measurement for length, area, volume
  • Calculate and prove the perimeter and area of rectangles using familiar metric units


Shape and Geometric reasoning


  • Connect three-dimensional objects with their nets and other two-
    dimensional representations
  • Estimate, measure and compare angles using degrees. Construct angles using a protractor


Location and transformation


  • Describe translations, reflections and rotations of two-dimensional shapes.  Identify line and rotational symmetries
  • Apply the enlargement transformation to familiar two dimensional shapes and explore the properties of the resulting image compared with the original.
