You are required to prepare an integrated unit of work for a Year 6 class that addresses some key aspects of
the mathematics curriculum at this level in the context of a realistic problem or issue (e.g., sustainability,
safety, health, equity).
should demonstrate that you able to choose and use a wide variety of resources in an appropriate way
(including the local environment and school community), work with diverse student learning needs in a
constructive manner, and make meaningful connections between different aspects of mathematics.
The Unit of work should include:
1. A meaningful and engaging title – no more than 20 words.
2. A statement of learning outcomes/intentions – no more than 4 content descriptors from 2 strands of the
Australian Year 6 Mathematics curriculum plus 2 content descriptors/outcomes from one other curriculum domain
from the Australian Curriculum (or VELS) at this level (i.e., 6 outcomes/descriptors in total, not included in word count).
3. A statement of prior knowledge – no more than 100 words
4. A flow chart – no more than 1 A4 page diagram, indicating how the unit of work will evolve over time – the
unit should be completed in 10 to 12 mathematics sessions but some activities may take 2 to 3 sessions.
5. Detailed lesson plans for at least 7 discrete activities/tasks (this assumes some will take more than one
session) that clearly address the learning outcomes and criteria above (detail should be sufficient for a
practicing teacher to implement the activity relatively easily);
6. An assessment strategy – no more than 50 words,
7. References – a complete and correctly cited list of references, resources and sources
(not included in word count).
