# Octagons [stage 4] Maths Group term 2 2019

We will be working on number knowledge and strategies to move students from stage 4, (Advanced Counting/counting on) to stage 5 (early part whole). We are especially focused this term on developing understanding of place value, and learning the basic facts to 10, (6+4=10, 10-4=6, etc) as well as doubles to 20, (5+5=10 etc). Practising these facts a little bit often will help them stick!

Students working at stage 4 are learning to:

- Read any number to 100

- Count forward and/or backwards from any number to 100

- Say the number before and/or after in the range 0-100

- Order numbers to 100

- Skip count forward and backwards in 2s, 5s, and 10s to 100

- Know numbers of 10s in decades

- Know groupings within 20

- Know teen number facts

- Know multiples of 10 that add to 100

- Know doubles and halves to 20

- Know addition facts to 10

- Read unit fractions

- Addition - solve addition problems by counting on from the largest number by imaging

- Subtraction - solve subtraction problems by counting on from the largest number by imaging

- Solve addition and subtraction by counting on or back in ones and tens

- Multiplication - solve multiplication by skip counting in 2s, 5s and 10s

- Fractions - find half and quarter of sets and shapes by equal sharing
