Measurement and Geometry
Using units of measurement (F-10)
(ACMMG006)
comparing objects directly, by placing one object against another to determine which is longer or by pouring from one container into the other to see which one holds more
using suitable language associated with measurement attributes, such as ‘tall’ and ‘taller’, ‘heavy’ and ‘heavier’, ‘holds more’ and ‘holds less’
Use direct and indirect comparisons to decide which is longer, heavier or holds more, and explain reasoning in everyday language (ACMMG006)
2
Measurement and Geometry
Using units of measurement (F-10)
(ACMMG037)
comparing lengths using finger length, hand span or a piece of string
comparing areas using the palm of the hand or a stone
comparing capacities using a range of containers
Compare and order several shapes and objects based on length, area, volume and capacity using appropriate uniform informal units (ACMMG037)
4
Measurement and Geometry
Using units of measurement (F-10)
(ACMMG290)
comparing areas using grid paper
comparing volume using centicubes
Compare objects using familiar metric units of area and volume (ACMMG290)
5
Measurement and Geometry
Using units of measurement (F-10)
(ACMMG109)
exploring efficient ways of calculating the perimeters of rectangles such as adding the length and width together and doubling the result
exploring efficient ways of finding the areas of rectangles, such as recognising that counting the number of square centimetres in a grid gives the same result as multiplying the length and width
Calculate the perimeter and area of rectangles using familiar metric units (ACMMG109)
5
Measurement and Geometry
Using units of measurement (F-10)
(ACMMG108)
recognising that some units of measurement are better suited for some tasks than others, for example kilometres rather than metres to measure the distance between two towns
investigating alternative measures of scale to demonstrate that these vary between countries and change over time, for example temperature measurement in Australia, Indonesia, Japan and USA
Choose appropriate units of measurement for length, area, volume, capacity and mass (ACMMG108)
6
Measurement and Geometry
Using units of measurement (F-10)
(ACMMG137)
recognising and investigating familiar objects using concrete materials and digital technologies
Solve problems involving the comparison of lengths and areas using appropriate units (ACMMG137)
6
Measurement and Geometry
Using units of measurement (F-10)
(ACMMG135)
recognising the equivalence of measurements such as 1.25 metres and 125 centimetres
Connect decimal representations to the metric system (ACMMG135)
