Terry has demonstrated an adequate level of competence in making a visual representation of data. The pictures in the display have been carefully aligned. A relevant question has been posed, demonstrating a sound understanding of mathematical concepts, but there is little interpretation of the data. To progress further, Terry should provide a more in-depth interpretation of the data display. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at the expected standard at the end of Kindergarten.

Foundation Statement strands

The following strands are covered in this activity:

  • Working Mathematically
    Students ask questions and explore mathematical problems. They use everyday language, materials and informal recordings to demonstrate understanding and link mathematical ideas.
  • Measurement and Data
    Students identify length, area, volume, capacity and mass and compare and arrange objects according to these attributes. They name the days of the week and the seasons and they order events in a school day, telling the time on the hour. Students use objects and pictures to create a data display and interpret data.
  • Number
    Students count to 30 and represent numbers to 20 with objects, pictures, numerals and words and read and use ordinal numbers to at least ‘tenth’ place. They manipulate objects to model addition and subtraction, multiplication and division. Students divide objects into two equal parts and describe them as halves. They recognise coins and notes.
