Curriculum Codes

AC9M3M02 9

Measure and compare objects using familiar metric units of length, mass and capacity, and instruments with labelled markings

AC9M3M01 9

Identify which metric units are used to measure everyday items; use measurements of familiar items and known units to make estimates

AC9M1M01 9

Compare directly and indirectly and order objects and events using attributes of length, mass, capacity and duration, communicating reasoning

AC9M2M01 9

Measure and compare objects based on length, capacity and mass using appropriate uniform informal units and smaller units for accuracy when necessary

AC9M1M02 9

Measure the length of shapes and objects using informal units, recognising that units need to be uniform and used end-to-end
