MA34NA
Orders, reads and represents integers of any size and describes properties of whole numbers

Whole Numbers 1

Recognise, represent and order numbers to at least tens of millions

Apply an understanding of place value and the role of zero to read and write numbers of any size
Play Activities 104Examples

State the place value of digits in numbers of any size
Examples

Arrange numbers of any size in ascending and descending order
Examples

Partition numbers of any size in nonstandard forms to aid mental calculation, eg when adding 163 480 and 150 000, 163 480 could be partitioned as 150 000 + 13 480, so that 150 000 could then be doubled and added to 13 480
Examples

Use numbers of any size in reallife situations, including in money problems
Examples

Round numbers to a specified place value, eg round 5 461 883 to the nearest million
Examples

Apply an understanding of place value and the role of zero to read and write numbers of any size

Identify and describe factors and multiples of whole numbers and use them to solve problems (ACMNA098)

Determine all 'factors' of a given whole number, eg 36 has factors 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18 and 36
Examples

Determine the 'highest common factor' (HCF) of two whole numbers, eg the HCF of 16 and 24 is 8
Examples

Determine 'multiples' of a given whole number, eg multiples of 7 are 7, 14, 21, 28, ...
Examples

Solve problems using knowledge of factors and multiples, eg 'There are 48 people at a party. In how many ways can you set up the tables and chairs, so that each table seats the same number of people and there are no empty chairs?'
Examples

Determine all 'factors' of a given whole number, eg 36 has factors 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18 and 36
