{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 11 From "Measurement" and 15 from "Space" are specific to this module.

11. Make sensible direct and indirect estimates of quantities and are alert to the reasonableness of measurements and results.

15. Visualise, draw and model shapes, locations and arrangements and predict and show the effect of transformations on them.

{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, 5 and 6 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.


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.

S 6.1a Visualises, sketches and describes paths and regions which satisfy provided conditions.


M 3.4b Attends informally to scale when making and using plans, maps and models.

M 4.4b Understands and uses scale factors involving small whole numbers and unit fractions for straightforward tasks, including making figures and objects on grids and with cubes.

M 5.4b Understands and uses scale factors and the effect of scaling linear dimensions on lengths, areas and volumes of figures and objects produced on grids and with cubes.

M 6.4b Understands and uses similarity and Pythagoras’ theorem to solve problems involving triangles and scale drawing.

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


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

Module Length:

Approximately 2 weeks (8 hours). This may vary upward according to the ability and prior understandings of the students.

Outcomes Levels:

Includes outcomes from levels 3, 4, 5 and 6.


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 C03, that is stage C module 3.

The content of this module is:

Scale drawing
Accurate drawing

Language development:

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

compass direction
scale drawing
scale factor

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.

Unit Curriculum Objectives covered are:

From Mathematical Development 2.3

  • S 2.12 Draw and interpret scale diagrams, considering both lengths and angles.
  • M 2.1 Develop informal ideas of a locus in two and three dimensions, including circles and spheres.
