Year 1 Mathematics



Understanding includes connecting names, numerals and quantities and partitioning numbers in various ways.

Fluency includes counting number in sequences readily forward and backwards, locating numbers on a line and naming the days of the week.

Problem Solving includes using materials to model authentic problems, giving and receiving directions to unfamiliar places, and using familiar counting sequences to solve unfamiliar problems and discussing the reasonableness of the answer.

Reasoning includes explaining direct and indirect comparisons of length using uniform informal units, justifying representations of data and explaining patterns that have been created.

Achievement Standard

By the end of the year students are expected to:

Number and Algebra

  • count to and from 100 and locate these numbers on a number line;
  • partition numbers using place value and carry out simple additions and subtractions, using counting strategies;
  • recognise Australian coins according to their value;
  • identify representations of one half and one quarter;
  • describe number sequences resulting from skip counting by 2s, 5s and 10s;
  • continue simple patterns involving numbers and objects with and without the use of digital technology.

Measurement and Geometry

  • use informal units of measurement to order objects based on length and capacity;
  • tell time to the half-hour and explain time duration;
  • describe two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional objects;
  • use the language of distance and direction to move from place to place.

Statistics and Probability

  • describe data displays;
  • ask questions to collect data and draw simple data displays;
  • classify outcomes of simple familiar events.
