Other Work Samples for:

Riley has demonstrated a limited level of competence in making spatial patterns. The beginnings of two patterns have been recorded but the patterns have not been repeated or continued. To progress further, Riley needs to use pattern blocks to continue patterns before attempting to record them. Once the repetition of two-part repeating patterns has been mastered, Riley can then be introduced to three-part repeating patterns. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing below the expected standard midway through 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.
  • Patterns and Algebra
    Students recognise, describe and continue patterns that increase or decrease.
