Jamie has demonstrated a thorough knowledge and understanding of graphing. The collecton of data using tally marks is mostly accurate and has been appropriately represented in a column graph. Each animal has been represented using a different colour but large squid have not been included in the tally. There is differentiation between the size of animals, showing an understanding of the concept of sub-grouping. Comparative statements have been used to interpret the graph and predications have been made about what animals might be seen at the beach in the future. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade B standard at the end of 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.
  • Measurement and Data
    Students estimate, measure, compare and record using informal units for length, area, volume, capacity and mass. They recognise the need for formal units of length and use the metre and centimetre to measure length and distance. Students use a calendar to identify the date and name and order the months and the seasons of the year. They use informal units to compare and order the duration of events and tell the time on the half-hour. Students gather, organise, display and interpret data using column and picture graphs.
