Stage 2: Counting from one on materials

The student is able to count a set of objects or form sets of objects to solve simple addition and subtraction problems. The student solves problems by counting all the objects.

Stage 5: Early additive part-whole

The student uses a limited range of mental strategies to estimate answers and solve addition or subtraction problems. These strategies involve deriving the answer from known basic facts, (eg. doubles, fives, making tens).

The student can estimate answers and solve addition and subtraction tasks involving whole numbers mentally by choosing appropriately from a broad range of advanced mental strategies (eg. place value positioning, rounding and compensating or reversibility).
The student uses a combination of known facts and a limited range of mental strategies to derive answers to multiplication and division problems, (eg. doubling, rounding or reversibility).
