Year 6 and 7 Mathematics, Science and Technology

Welcome to Term 2 Math

This term we cover three topics:
   Rates and Ratio   

Ongoing homework entails finishing the topic we studied in class that day.  Extension work will be set for students working ahead of the rest of the class, for example, in shapes, students are designing a powerpoint and oral presentation that focuses on shapes and megastructures. This involves utilising the skills that we have learnt in the unit.
Additional homework will be set when students are completing an assignment - this will be in the form of worksheets and an investigation task.

Enjoy this term! :-)

Unit 1 - Rates, Ratio and Proportions

Percentages, rate, ratio and proportion can be used to describe relationships between quantities and to solve problems in practical situations involving money, time and other measures

      e.g.  if a breakfast drink contains 10% mango juice, 20% pineapple juice, 30% orange juice and the rest is water, how many millilitres of each juice is there in a 2-litre container of the breakfast drink?; find the number of girls in a school as a proportion of the total number of students in the school; for two similar products such as breakfast cereal, determine which is better value by comparing the mass of cereal in each package and the cost.

EsProblems can be interpreted and solved by selecting from the four operations and mental, written and technology-assisted strategies

      e.g.  find the price of a $68.00 shirt with 25% discount.

Unit 2 - Space - Shapes

  • Analyse situations to identify mathematical concepts and the relationships between key features and conditions necessary to generate solutions.

    Eg analyse famous megastructures or international or local landmarks to identify the use of 2D and 3D shapes and objects, and to describe the features of these.
  • Reflect on and identify the contribution of mathematics to their life.

    Eg how and why have the 2D and 3D shapes been effectively used in the selected structure.

Shapes - Week 6
Week 6 is the start of our space unit focusing on shapes. This week we will be looking at 2D shapes and the types of 2D shapes. We will focus on triangles, polygons and quadrilaterals, all PowerPoints and worksheets are to be completed. The assessment task; Around the world in 80 shape will be outlined this week, students need to be thinking about 5 (five)megastructures from around the world that they can study.

Unit 3a - Measurment - Time

  • Timetables and duration of events involving both 12- and 24-hour time cycles in Australian time zones can be calculated

         e.g. calculate the length of a flight between the east and west coasts of Australia, taking into account the time difference

·         Knows key times in 24-hour time, that 0000 is midnight; that times between 0000 and 1200 are am and that times after 1200 are pm

·         Calculates time elapsed in terms of hours, minutes and seconds from analog and digital timepieces, for both 12- and 24-hour cycles

·         Knows names of longer periods like decades and centuries

·         Knows Australian time zones and Australian daylight savings times
