Stage 2 | Subject outline | Capabilities | Numeracy


In this subject students extend and apply their numeracy capability by, for example:

  • demonstrating an understanding of general and personal space
  • identifying a variety of musical counting, phrasings, time signatures, and rhythms
  • understanding shape, weight, and force through the exploration of geometric and mathematical shape in dance (e.g. symmetry, asymmetry, concave and convex shapes, and counterbalance)
  • recognising and using patterns and spatial relationships.
