## Comparing Length - Taylor : Commentary

### Other Work Samples for:

Taylor has demonstrated an adequate level of competence in comparing the length of different objects. Five objects have been ordered according to their length and a baseline has been used to align the ends of the objects. A pictorial representation has been provided but mathematical language has not been used and there is no written explanation. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at 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.
• 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.
