Overview

The Year 7 Measurement program is aligned with the Measurement and Geometry strand of the NSW Mathematics K-10 Syllabus. NSW students studying Year 7 Measurement explore international time zones including 12 and 24 hour time, calculate the perimeter of a variety of 2D shapes (trapezia, rectangles, circles), convert units of length and name the features of circles.

Topics & Concepts We Cover

This learning program is made up of the following 3 topics, broken down into 29 concepts.

  • Area 8 concepts

    1. Choose an appropriate unit to measure the areas of different shapes and surfaces, eg floor space, fields

    2. Use the areas of familiar surfaces to assist with the estimation of larger areas, eg the areas of courts and fields for sport

    3. Compare areas of rectangles with the same perimeter

    4. Develop and use the formulas to find the areas of parallelograms

    5. Develop and use the formulas to find the areas of rectangles and squares

    6. Develop and use the formulas to find the areas of triangles

    7. Find the areas of simple composite figures that may be dissected into rectangles, squares, parallelograms and triangles

    8. Convert between metric units of area

  • Time 8 concepts

    1. Add and subtract time mentally using bridging strategies

    2. Converting fractions or decimals to hours, minutes and seconds

    3. Solve a variety of problems involving duration

    4. Compare times using Australian time zones

    5. Add and subtract time with a calculator, including by using the 'degrees, minutes, seconds' button

    6. Round answers to time calculations to the nearest minute or hour

    7. Converting units of time

    8. Solve problems involving international time zones

  • Length 13 concepts

    1. Investigate pi as the ratio of the circumference to the diameter of a circle

    2. Develop and use the formulas to find the circumferences of circles in terms of the diameter or radius

    3. Use an approximation of pi to find the circumference of a circle

    4. Identify and name parts of a circle and related lines, including arc, tangent, chord, sector and segment

    5. Find the diameter and/or radius of a circle, given its circumference

    6. Find the perimeters of quadrants and semicircles

    7. Find the perimeters of composite figures including sectors

    8. Solve problems involving circles and parts of circles, giving answers in terms of pi, using the calculator or using approximations of pi

    9. Compare perimeters of rectangles with the same area

    10. Find the dimensions of a rectangle, given its perimeter and the length of one side

    11. Use formulae to find the arc length of a sector

    12. Find the perimeter of sectors including quadrants and semicircles

    13. Find the perimeters of a range of plane shapes, including composite figures
