## Where's the number? - Marley : Commentary

### Other Work Samples for:

Marley has correctly placed most numbers on the number line using materials provided by the teacher. Numerals have been accurately recorded and strategies have been applied to make generalisations about where a number should be placed based on the position of other numbers. The placement of the number 8 has been cross-checked and the process has been explained. 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.
• 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.
