Hey guys, I've noticed something, which has me doubting my own knowledge, because it's come from a teacher with quite a lot of experience.

On her class profile, she's capitalised Number/Space/Measurement and Time. Context below.

'Monday to Wednesday for Number and Thursday to Friday as a whole class for Space and Measurement and Time.'


In context, could they be capitalised because they're names of units? I would ask the teacher, but I won't be seeing her again for quite some time.

I'd appreciate it if somebody could attempt to clarify.

They seem like the names of units to me. Was it really "Number" and not "Numbers"?

Yeah, I thought that was strange. It's Number. I re-wrote it as numbers anyway. I just hope that the marker sees that they're units. I don't want them to think I threw in capitals for now reason. lol
