## Comparing Length - Cameron : Commentary

### Other Work Samples for:

Cameron has demonstrated a limited level of competence in comparing the length of different objects. An attempt has been made to create a pictorial representation of the objects but the ends of the objects have not been aligned. The longest object has been identified and compared to a group of objects using everyday language and some mathematical language. To progress further, Cameron would benefit from more opportunities to practise accurate pictorial representation using alignment. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing below the expected standard at the end of 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.
