- STUDENT LINKS
Welcome to all parents/guardians
As a school, we continue to look for ways to connect the school community to support and enrich students learning. As there are many areas of maths to explore and discover, we find that children require more time to grasp the concepts being taught.
This web page provides a series of videos that demonstrate the strategies used in the classroom when teaching various areas of number. You have the opportunity to stop, pause and replay the videos in order for your child to learn at their own pace. It is important to know that there is a sequential order in which strategies are taught, allowing children to build their knowledge gradually.
You as a parent also have an opportunity to understand the strategies being taught and will be able to further assist your child. It is important to have your child to be able to explain the strategies, therefore demonstrating a deeper understanding.
At this point in time we have only addition and subtraction with some place value strategies. We endeavour to add to this webpage soon.
We hope you and your child find the maths videos a useful and engaging tool to assist in continued practise of the strategies taught in the classroom.
Below is a link explaining why we teach certain maths strategies at school.
Could you please take the time to fill in the survey below, to give us some feedback on the videos.

This is the first of a 3 part series of a game of how to play ‘First to 100’ using a Place Value Mat , Dice and pop sticks.
Second part of the 3 part series of the game ’First to 100’, demonstrating renaming. For example: ten ones to be one ten and ten tens to be one hundred.
This is the third part of a three part series of the game ‘First to 100’ demonstrating how to interpret a 3 digit number, using the Place Value Mat and the Number Expander tool.
Demonstration of using what is known about adding ten to a number to be able to add nine to a number.
This video demonstrates how to partition (break up) a number so it can be added to another number using the “Make up to next 10” strategy. It also models using an open number line to add two 2 digit numbers also incorporating the Make up to next 10 strategy.
Basic explanation of what the Commutative Law is in relation to addition equations.
Importance for children to know the single digit doubles facts automatically.
Demonstration of how to find the double of a single digit number using a number line and the Make to Ten strategy. (When doubles facts are not automatically known)
Demonstration of how to find the double of a single digit number using tens frames to assist. (When doubles facts are not automatically known)
This video explains how to use what is known about the Doubles and Near Doubles Strategies and apply it to solving a 2 digit add 2 digit equation.
This video demonstrates how to use what is known about Doubles strategy and use it to solve equations that are nearly the same, so it is called the “Near Doubles” strategy. It also incorporates using a tens frame to assist finding the answer.
Make a Model to solve a worded problem
This video is about using materials and the use of the problem solving strategy, of ‘Make a Model’ to solve a basic worded problem.
Make an Array that matches a word problem
This video is about using the information about an array and making up a worded problem to match that array.
Make a model using an array
Using materials and the problem solving strategies to ‘Make a Model’ and using an array to help solve a worded problem.
