# The Australian Mathematics Curriculum ... and some ...

#### It would be helpful for all students need to know that there are three broad Strands running right through the Australian Mathematics Curriculum

• Number and Algebra
• Measurement and Geometry
• Statistics and Probability

#### To this, Arithmetika has added a fourth

• Basic Number Skills

# The Substrands

#### Some but not all substrands run all the way through from K to 12. For example,

• Number and place value runs from F to 8
• Real numbers from 7 to 10A
• Using units of meaurement from F-10A

In the illustration on the right the substrands in Year 7, Number and Algebra are shown, with the student's progress indicated in each. As you will see below, each substrand has a number of Content Descriptions (Topics) and there are a number of tasks to complete in each topic.

As you can see our student has made some progress in Number and place value. The student clicks on any subtrand to view its Content Descriptions (Topics).

# The Topics

#### Each substrand has a number of Content Descriptions (Topics). For example, in Year 7 Number and Place value there are four Topics

• ACMNA 149 on index notation
• ACMNA 150 on square roots
• ACMNA 151 on laws to aid computation
• ACMNA 280 on operations with integers
