NAPLAN Test Preparation: Numeracy – Year 5

Direct Instruction


The NAPLAN Year 5 Numeracy program is a program for Year 5 students. It aligns to the Australian Curriculum Mathematics Strand:

  • Compare and order common unit fractions and locate and represent them on a number line. (ACMNA102)
  • Investigate strategies to solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions with the same denominator. (ACMNA103)
  • Solve problems involving multiplication of large numbers by one- or two-digit numbers using efficient mental and written strategies and appropriate digital technologies. (ACMNA100)
  • Use efficient mental and written strategies and apply appropriate digital technologies to solve problems. (ACMNA291)
  • Solve problems involving division by a one digit number, including those that result in a remainder. (ACMNA101)
  • Find unknown quantities in number sentences involving multiplication and division and identify equivalent number sentences involving multiplication and division. (ACMNA121)
  • Choose appropriate units of measurement for length, area, volume, capacity and mass. (ACMMG108)
  • Calculate perimeter and area of rectangles using familiar metric units. (ACMMG109)
  • Estimate, measure and compare angles using degrees. Construct angles using a protractor. (ACMMG112)
  • Connect three-dimensional objects with their nets and other two-dimensional representations. (ACMMG111)
  • Use a grid reference system to describe locations. Describe routes using landmarks and directional language. (ACMMG113)
  • Describe translations, reflections and rotations of two-dimensional shapes. Identify line and rotational symmetries. (ACMMG114)
  • Construct displays, including column graphs, dot plots and tables, appropriate for data type, with and without the use of digital technologies. (ACMSP119)
  • Describe and interpret different data sets in context. (ACMSP120)
Learning Objectives

In Lessons 1 to 20, students learn about:

  • pattern numbers
  • word problems
  • graphs
  • fractions
  • faces, vertices, edges of shapes
  • area, perimeter, volume
  • time word problems
  • transformations (rotation, translation, reflection)
  • angles
  • probability
  • symmetry.
Success Criteria
  • Describe, interpret and continue number patterns.
  • Use addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to solve word problems.
  • Calculate time problems.
  • Understand fractions.
  • Interpret, create and analyse graphs.
  • Identify symmetry of shapes and transformations of shapes.
  • Calculate area, perimeter and volume.
  • Calculate probability.
  • Measure angles.
