MAV remote learning support

Home Learning Tasks

During COVID-19 disruptions MAV has produced weekly home learning guides. The aim of these guides is to assist teachers who are supporting families with mathematics home learning. There are three learning levels: F – 2, 3 – 6, and 7 – 9.

Edition 1 - 10: Five tasks on two different content areas plus a recommended app

Editions 11 - 13: Five warm up tasks on a given Victorian Curriculum Content strand

Editions 14 - 17: Two investigation tasks on a given Victorian Curriculum Content strand

Edition 18: Number & Algebra Games

Largely, tasks had been developed to rely on minimal materials. Playing cards, dice and access to a computer had been interwoven for various tasks. The tasks are a mix of open-ended, rich tasks, challenging tasks and small investigations.
