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 possible 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 Tests
  • 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 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.
