# Success Criteria – Term 2

## NAPLAN Success Criteria (Year 5)

** **

**Through working on practise NAPLAN tests: **

I am working toward identifying the correct answer by eliminating incorrect answers.

I have identified areas of need and am taking steps to improve my strategies in these areas.

I am working towards identifying what the questions are asking me to do. And explain why.

I am working towards identifying the steps required to solve a question.

I am working towards taking my time to check my answers carefully once I am finished. This includes re-reading the question.

## Measurement (Year 6 & Year 5 once completed NAPLAN criteria)

**Mild **

**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.**

**Calculate the perimeter and area of rectangles using familiar metric units**- Construct an object using MAB – investigate the perimeter and area. How do these relate to its dimensions.

Examples

- Be creative! What can you measure in our school? Use these measurements to work out area, perimeter, volume?
- Build a model or draft a scale version of what you have measured. You may need to rename your measurements.
- Design and build something which demonstrates your understanding of measurement.
- Investigate volume using water and different size tubs.
- Use scales to investigate weight and mass and natural materials (leaves, rocks, fruit and vegetables).
- Measure the pH level in the soil.
- Measure the outside temperature – what observations can you make. Graph your results
- Measure the temperature of soil, turtle tank etc.
- Any other ideas you have. Please share with the class!

** **

**Spicy**

**Connect****decimal representations to the metric system**

Recognising the equivalence of measurements such as 1.25 metres and 125 centimetres.

- Demonstrate your understanding of this through an investigation listed in the Mild S.C.

**Show your understanding the equivalence between units of measurement.**

** **For example 100cm = 1000mm

- Demonstrate your understanding of this through an investigation listed in the Mild S.C.

**Investigate what the significance of the prefixes in the units of measurement.**

** **For example what does the *centi *mean in the word centimetre.

**Connect volume and capacity and their units of measurement.**

For example recognising that 1ml is equivalent to 1cm^{3 }

Investigate the volume of places around the school – Turtle tank, water tank, vegetable garden etc. How would you measure the volume of irregular polyhedra in everyday life?

**Construct simple prisms and pyramids**

** **What are their measurements? Using these measurements calculate perimetre, area and volume.

**Hot**

- Establish the formulas for areas of rectangles, triangles and parallelograms and use these in problem solving.

- From your investigations – what is the formula for calculating volume of different polyhedra. How does this link to area?

- Draw different views of prisms and solids formed from combinations of prisms.

# Maths Talent Quest

Anyone who is interested in competing in the Maths Talent Quest this year, the first meeting will be this Friday 27th at Lunch in the Maths room. Both Grade 5’s and 6’s can compete this year!

# Student workshops!

# SDL/Homework Task

Write a reflection on your blog (on your maths page) about your learning this week. You can also copy and paste this onto your Google Drive. Please include;

– What you achieved this week.

– What workshops you attended.

– What new concepts and strategies your learnt.

– What is your goal for next week? What do you still want to improve on?

– How are you going to achieve this goal?

This should be completed by Monday 🙂

Ps. If your blog is not up and running yet please record this in your maths book to put on your blog at a later date.

# Hello 5/6 Mathematicians!

Welcome to 5/6 Maths 2015!

I hope you are all ready to challenge your mathematical brains, and achieve some pretty amazing things. That is what Maths in 5/6 is all about! This page will be your one stop shop for what is happening in Maths this year. Here, you can find; Learning Intentions and Success Criteria, workshop timetables, student show-me’s, surveys, extra challenges, links to websites and resources for investigations. Looking forward to posting all your investigations and findings here for everyone to learn and share!
