Other Work Samples for:

Kim has demonstrated thorough knowledge and understanding of addition facts to 10, and a high level of competence in solving mathematical problems. Accurate solutions have been recorded using numerals, words and pictures. All possible combinations have been identified and inverse number sentences have been used. Mathematical symbols and the language of chance have been appropriately used. Kim has extended the response to include three-number and four-number combinations that demonstrate additional skills but are not required by the task. To enhance this response, Kim could describe more combinations in words and justify the inclusion of the three-number and four-number combinations. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade B standard midway through Stage 1.

Foundation Statement strands

The following strands are covered in this activity:

  • Working Mathematically
    Students ask questions and use objects, diagrams and technology to explore mathematical problems. They link mathematical ideas and use everyday language, some mathematical language and diagrams to explain how answers were obtained.
  • Number
    Students count, order, read and write numbers up to 999 and use a range of mental strategies, informal recording methods and materials to add, subtract, multiply and divide. They model and describe objects and collections divided into halves and quarters. Students sort, order and count money and recognise and describe the element of chance in familiar activities.
  • Patterns and Algebra
    Students describe, create and continue a variety of number patterns and relate addition and subtraction facts to at least 20.
