NAPLAN Test Preparation Numeracy - Year 5

Direct Instruction

The NAPLAN Year 5 Numeracy program is a program for Year 5 students. It aligns to the Australian Curriculum Mathematics Strand:
• Compare and order common unit fractions and locate and represent them on a number line (ACMNA102)
• Investigate strategies to solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions with the same denominator (ACMNA103)
• Solve problems involving multiplication of large numbers by one- or two-digit numbers using efficient mental, written strategies and appropriate digital technologies (ACMNA100)
• Use efficient mental and written strategies and apply appropriate digital technologies to solve problems (ACMNA291)
• Solve problems involving division by a one digit number, including those that result in a remainder (ACMNA101)
• Use efficient mental and written strategies and apply appropriate digital technologies to solve problems (ACMNA291)
• Find unknown quantities in number sentences involving multiplication and division and identify equivalent number sentences involving multiplication and division (ACMNA121)
• Choose appropriate units of measurement for length, area, volume, capacity and mass (ACMMG108)
• Calculate perimeter and area of rectangles using familiar metric units (ACMMG109)
• Estimate, measure and compare angles using degrees. Construct angles using a protractor (ACMMG112)
• Connect three-dimensional objects with their nets and other two-dimensional representations (ACMMG111)
• Use a grid reference system to describe locations. Describe routes using landmarks and directional language (ACMMG113)
• Describe translations, reflections and rotations of two-dimensional shapes. Identify line and rotational symmetries (ACMMG114)
• Construct displays, including column graphs, dot plots and tables, appropriate for data type, with and without the use of digital technologies (ACMSP119)
• Describe and interpret different data sets in context (ACMSP120)
