Top-ups and Swap-outs for Currency and Measurement – Year 1 is a Mathematics unit for Year 1 students. It works in cooperation with Connecting Maths Concepts (CMC) to ensure that delivery of CMC aligns with Australian Curriculum gap requirements:

  • Recognise, describe and order Australian coins according to their value (ACMNA017).
  • Identify outcomes of familiar events involving chance and describe them using everyday language such as ‘will happen’, ‘won’t happen’ or ‘might happen’ (ACMSP024).
  • Measure and compare the lengths and capacities of pairs of objects using uniform informal units (ACMMG019).
  • Tell time to the half-hour (ACMMG020).
  • Describe duration using months, weeks, days and hours (ACMMG021).
  • Use mathematical modelling to solve practical problems involving additive situations, including simple money transactions; represent the situations with diagrams, physical and virtual materials, and use calculation strategies to solve the problem (AC9M1N05) 
Learning Objectives
  • Identify change of familiar events
  • Justify chance of familiar events
  • Identify possible/impossible events
  • Identify certain and impossible events

In the Swap Outs students learn to:
  • Identify and count Australian coins and notes
  • Apply ruler skills to measure length
  • Use a ruler to count backwards
  • Solve comparison word problems. 
Success Criteria
  • Identify outcomes of familiar events involving chance.
  • Describe everyday events using language such as ‘will happen’, ‘won’t happen’, or ‘might happen’.
  • Use a ruler to count backwards.
  • Demonstrate simple money transactions 
Mastery Test
Mastery Tests are given at the end of every 10 lessons, designed to be taught over a two-week cycle. Mastery Tests allow teachers to monitor student understanding of the concepts taught in previous lessons and to identify where reteaching is needed. The Teaching Guide contains the Mastery Test script. Mastery Tests are delivered using a presentation script, board displays and a handout for students. The Teaching Guide also contains the Answer Key.

Cumulative Tests
There are two Cumulative Tests for Swap-Outs that are completed after lesson 60 and lesson 120. Teachers copy the assessment and distribute to students at testing time.
