Where's the number? - Eden : Commentary

Other Work Samples for:

Eden has demonstrated an understanding of the placement of numbers 3 and 4 but has incorrectly placed the numbers 5, 6 and 8 on the number line. The number line at the front of the room has not been used for guidance and Eden has simply guessed the placement of numbers. To progress further, Eden needs to use strategies such as the guide provided to assist in completing a number line. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing below 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 â€˜tenthâ€™ 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.
