{slider=CF Outcomes}

This information is found in the wrap around pages of the teachers module. It details the Curriculum Framework Outcomes addressed in the module.

Outcomes 1 & 2 should be an inherent part of all mathematics lessons.

1. Show a disposition to use mathematics to assist with understanding new situations, solving problems and making decisions, showing initiative, flexibility and persistence when working mathematically and a positive attitude to their own continued involvement in learning and doing mathematics.

2. Appreciate that mathematics has its origins in many cultures, and its forms reflect specific social and historical contexts, and understand its significance in explaining and influencing aspects of our lives.

Outcomes 3, 4 & 5 "Working Mathematically" are an integral part in the design of every module. These outcomes determined the three stage learning process developed in each module.

3. Call on a repertoire of general problem-solving techniques, appropriate technology and personal and collaborative management strategies when working mathematically.

4. Choose mathematical ideas and tools to fit the constraints in a practical situation, interpret and make sense of the results within the context and evaluate the appropriateness of the methods used.

5. Investigate, generalise and reason about patterns in number, space and data, explaining and justifying conclusions reached.

Outcomes 9 from "Measurement" and 15, from "Space", are specific to this module.

9. Decide what needs to be measured and carry out measurements of length, capacity/volume, mass, area, time and angle to needed levels of accuracy.

15. Visualise, draw and model shapes, locations and arrangements and predict and show the effect of transformations on them. Outcomes 12 and 13 from "Chance and Data", are specific to this module.

{slider=Student Outcomes}

This information is found in the wrap around pages of the teachers module. It details the major student outcomes that should have been developed during the module.

Major Student Outcomes

During this module students should have been developing the following outcomes:

Working mathematically outcomes at levels 3, 4 and 5 are interwoven with the structure of these modules.

The outcomes below are dealt with specifically in this module.

Outcomes from different strands are integrated into this module.


M 3.3 Makes sensible numerical estimates using units that can be seen or handled and uses language such as ‘between’ to describe estimates.

M 4.2 Measures area by counting uniform units including where part-units are required, and measures length, mass, capacity, time and angle, reading whole number scales.

M 4.3 Uses the known size of familiar things to help make and improve estimates, including centimetres, metres, kilograms, litres and minutes.

M 5.1 Takes purpose and practicality into account when selecting attributes, units and instruments for measuring things and uses the relationship between metric prefixes to move between units.

M 5.2 Uses a range of whole number and decimal scales for measuring, including making measurements that are more accurate than the available scales allow.

M 5.3 Makes sensible estimates of length, area, mass, capacity and time in standard units and identifies unreasonable estimates of things.


S 4.1 Uses distance, direction and grids on maps and plans and in descriptions of locations and paths.

S 5.1a Uses coordinates, bearings and scale on maps and plans and in descriptions of locations and paths.


This information is found in the wrap around pages of the teachers module. It gives details about the module.

Module Length:

Approximately 3 weeks (12 hours). This may vary according to the ability and prior understandings of the students.

Outcomes Levels:

Includes outcomes from levels 3, 4 & 5.


Each Integrated Maths Module has been assigned a stage and number. The stage is designed to help teachers in their sequencing of modules. The number is for identification of each module.

This module is B03, that is stage B module 3.

The content of this module is:

Parallel and perpendicular
Angle relationships

Language development:

The following terms (or derivations of them) are an essential part of this module:

angle of elevation
angle of depression vertex
right angle
straight angle
reflex angle
adjacent angle
opposite angle

These terms are in bold whenever they appear in this text.


The structure of all modules is to present materials in three stages:

Exploration - Formalisation - Application

The files available here for downloading are a Sample Activity from the Exploration Stage of this module and a Sample Application from the Application stage of this module.

These files are available as pdf files. To view and print these files you will need a program like Adobe Acrobat Reader which is available free here.

{slider=Unit Curriculum Links}

This information is found in the wrap around pages of the teachers module produced for Western Australian schools. It details the links to the old Unit Curriculum objectives for schools trying to adapt programmes etc.

Unit Curriculum Objectives covered are:

From Maths Development 2.3

  • M 2.2 Further develop the concept of angle.
  • M 2.3 Consider units of angle size.
  • M 2.4 Estimates angle size.
  • M 2.5 Use instruments to determine angle sizes and draw angles of given size.
  • S 2.4 Further develop the concept of angle, to include parallelism and perpendicularity.
  • S 2.5 Identify adjacent, vertically opposite, supplementary and complementary angles.
