IMS Units

THE IMS UNITS

The Year 7 mathematics syllabus is included within a set of twenty (20) IMS units. The units are not listed in any particular order. As outlined in the curriculum overview, the IMS curriculum has a non-linear approach to teaching. This implies that topics, units or syllabus objectives do not necessarily build on one another in a specific way. Indeed, we argue that mathematical connections may become more evident to students when ideas are presented in a non-linear fashion through a range of problems, situations and tasks. Indeed, we also feel that teachers should be free to decide the order in which to plan and teach the units.

Each unit title listed below describe the tasks, problems and puzzles using verbs to emphasize the mathematical processes inherent in each activity. Units are estimated to take from one to two full weeks to complete, that is, between a minimum of 5 to a maximum of 10 lessons. This is indicated on each of the twenty unit cards provided underneath.
