This teaching resource is a PowerPoint which provides a series of mathematical warm up activities that cover areas across the curriculum. You can do these quick activities to help warm up for a particular focus lesson, or use them to break up the day to keep students fresh for learning.
Each activity has direct links to learning goals in the Australian Curriculum.
Areas of learning included:
Number and Algebra
Australian Curriculum alignment
Convert between common metric units of length, mass and capacity
Interpret and use timetables
Construct simple prisms and pyramids
Investigate, with and without digital technologies, angles on a straight line, angles at a point and vertically opposite angles. Use results to find unknown angles
Identify and describe properties of prime, composite, square and triangular numbers
Select and apply efficient mental and written strategies and appropriate digital technologies to solve problems involving all four operations with whole numbers
Investigate everyday situations that use integers. Locate and represent these numbers on a number line
Compare fractions with related denominators and locate and represent them on a number line
Solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions with the same or related denominators
Add and subtract decimals, with and without digital technologies, and use estimation and rounding to check the reasonableness of answers
Multiply and divide decimals by powers of 10
Investigate and calculate percentage discounts of 10%, 25% and 50% on sale items, with and without digital technologies
Explore the use of brackets and order of operations to write number sentences
Conduct chance experiments with both small and large numbers of trials using appropriate digital technologies
Interpret and compare a range of data displays, including side-by-side column graphs for two categorical variables
Interpret secondary data presented in digital media and elsewhereElaborationsinvestigating data representations in the media and discussing what they illustrate and the messages the people who created them might want to convey (Skills: Literacy, Nume...
