The Australian Curriculum: Mathematics (Australian Curriculum, Assessment, and Reporting Authority [ACARA], 2013a) has had a mixed reception from mathematics educators (e.g., Atweh, Goos, Jorgensen, & Siemon, 2012) and the debate will lead to continuing improvement and relevance over time. There are places in the curriculum, however, whether planned or not, where valuable links can be made that offer great opportunity for classroom activities. One of these appears in Year 4 in the strands of Measurement and Data.
