  • Content strands
  • Proficiency strands
how is the draft k 10 australian curriculum for mathematics different to the nsw syllabus
How is the draft K–10 Australian Curriculum for mathematics different to the NSW syllabus?
  • Statistics and probability
  • Calculators appear to be introduced from as early as Kindergarten
  • Concept sequencing and terminology differences
  • Curriculum organised in Years not Stages
  • Content descriptions not outcomes
  • Year 10 and Year 10A not Stage 5.1,5.2 and 5.3
general questions
General questions
  • Does the draft Australian mathematics curriculum support both excellence and equity?
  • Is the draft curriculum focused on the important ideas?
  • Is the draft curriculum coherent? In particular, does the sequence of development make sense in algebra, geometry, etc?
  • Is the draft curriculum internally consistent in the way it uses concepts from other strands (e.g. the introduction of the equality symbol and linear equations)?
specific questions
Specific questions
  • How does the draft curriculum provide support for the full range of students in your class?
  • How do the standards compare to the current NSW syllabus?
  • How is content organised in school years meant to assist the diverse range of learners?
  • How is Year 10A to be treated compared to Year 10?
identifying the issues and areas where support might be needed
Identifying the issues and areas where support might be needed
  • Will teachers need to tailor the new curriculum to suit the needs of particular groups of students? Will they need support for this?
    • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students
    • ESL students
    • Students with learning difficulties
    • Students with disabilities
    • Gifted and talented students
    • Others?
  • Will teachers need professional learning and teaching resources to support the extra content in the Statistics and probability strand?
  • Will the Year 10A curriculum meet the prior knowledge requirements for the Year 11 and 12 mathematics courses?
  • CAS calculators are identified in the ICT general capability for mathematics. Will teachers need professional learning and teaching resources to support the introduction of this technology?
  • Any other support required for implementation?
