# Mathematics Key

The following codes and icons are used in the Mathematics K–10 Syllabus.

## Outcome coding

Syllabus outcomes have been coded in a consistent way. The code identifies the subject, the stage, the outcome number and the way content is organised.

The stages are represented by the following codes:

 Stage Code Early Stage 1 e Stage 1 1 Stage 2 2 Stage 3 3 Stage 4 4 Stage 5.1 5.1 Stage 5.2 5.2 Stage 5.3 5.3

In the Mathematics syllabus, Working Mathematically and the strands are represented by the following codes:

 Working Mathematically WM Number and Algebra NA Measurement and Geometry MG Statistics and Probability SP

For example:

 Outcome code Interpretation MAe-1WM Mathematics, Early Stage 1 - Outcome 1, Working Mathematically MA4-5NA Mathematics, Stage 4 - Outcome 5, Number and Algebra MA5.2-16SP Mathematics, Stage 5.2 - Outcome 16, Statistics and Probability MALS-27MG Mathematics, Life Skills - Outcome 27, Measurement and Geometry

## Coding of the Australian Curriculum content

The syllabus includes all the Australian curriculum content descriptions for Mathematics. The content descriptions are identified by an Australian curriculum code, which appears in brackets at the end of each content description, for example:

• Count collections to 100 by partitioning numbers using place value (ACMNA014).

The Australian curriculum Mathematics codes are:

 Code Interpretation ACMNA Australian Curriculum, Mathematics, Number and Algebra ACMMG Australian Curriculum, Mathematics, Measurement and Geometry ACMSP Australian Curriculum, Mathematics, Statistics and Probability

## Learning Across the Curriculum icons

Learning across the curriculum content, including cross-curriculum priorities, general capabilities and other areas identified as important learning for all students, is incorporated and identified by icons in the Mathematics K–10 Syllabus

 Cross-curriculum priorities Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures Asia and Australia's engagement with Asia Sustainability General capabilities Critical and creative thinking Ethical understanding Information and communication technology capability Intercultural understanding Literacy Numeracy* Personal and social capability Other learning across the curriculum areas Work and enterprise

* Numeracy is embedded throughout the Mathematics K–10 Syllabus. It relates to a high proportion of content across K–10. Consequently, this particular general capability is not tagged in the syllabus.
