## GEOMETRY & MEASUREMENT CURRICULUM LINKS BY LEVEL - NZ CURRICULUM

## LEVEL ONE:

**Measurement**

Order and compare objects or events by length, area, volume and capacity, weight (mass), turn (angle), temperature, and time by direct comparison and/or counting whole numbers of units.

**Position and Orientation**

Give and follow instructions for movement that involves distances, directions, and half or quarter turns.

Describe their position relative to a person or object.

**Transformation**

Communicate and record the results of translations, reflections, and rotations on plane shapes.

## LEVEL TWO:

**Measurement**

Create and use appropriate units and devices to measure length, area, volume and capacity, weight (mass), turn (angle), temperature, and time.

Partition and/or combine like measures and communicate them, using numbers and units.

**Position and orientation**

Create and use simple maps to show position and direction.

Describe different views and pathways from locations on a map.

**Transformation**

Predict and communicate the results of translations, reflections, and rotations on plane shapes.

## LEVEl THREE:

**Measurement**

Use linear scales and whole numbers of metric units for length, area, volume and capacity, weight (mass), angle, temperature, and time.

**Position and orientation**

Use a co-ordinate system or the language of direction and distance to specify locations and describe paths.

## LEVEL FOUR:

**Measurement**

Use appropriate scales, devices, and metric units for length, area, volume and capacity, weight (mass), temperature, angle, and time.

Convert between metric units, using whole numbers and commonly used decimals.

**Position and orientation**

Communicate and interpret locations and directions, using compass directions, distances, and grid references.

**LEVEL FIVE:**

**Measurement**

Select and use appropriate metric units for length, area, volume and capacity, weight (mass), temperature, angle, and time, with awareness that measurements are approximate.

Convert between metric units, using decimals.

**Position and orientation**

Construct and describe simple loci.

Interpret points and lines on co-ordinate planes, including scales and bearings on maps.

**LEVEL SIX:**

**Measurement**

Measure at a level of precision appropriate to the task.

Apply the relationships between units in the metric system, including the units for measuring different attributes and derived measures.

**Shape**

Deduce and apply the angle properties related to circles.
