# Mathematics

Daily reinforcement will assist in the development of understanding of mathematical concepts. Children will be encouraged to use suitable procedures to solve problems and will be encouraged to use language to explain what was done.

Number and Numeration

• Counting, reading and printing numbers
• Demonstrating the one-to-one correspondence between numbers and objects when counting
• Demonstrating the meaning of numbers and the conversation of numbers
• Manipulating numbers by adding and subtracting – concrete to abstract
• Understanding half as part of a whole

Measurement and Estimation

• Comparing objects and using language to describe comparison
• Demonstrating an appreciation of time, days of the week and seasons
• Demonstrating an understanding of the value of coins
• Using metric and non-standard tools

Geometry and Spatial Sense

• Examining relationships of size, shape and strength
• Understanding spatial relationships
• Exploring and identifying two and three dimensional objects
• Identifying and sorting by different attributes
• Exploring symmetry
• Demonstrating spatial sense in relation to self and objects (beside, under, etc.)

Patterning and Algebra

• Classifying
• Putting in series
• Comparing patterns to real world
• Extending a pattern

Data Management and Probability

• Collecting information by counting and measurement
• Recording information
• Asking “wh” questions (why, when, etc.)
• Using probability language (never, sometimes and always)
