Other Work Samples for:

Darcy has demonstrated a high level of competence in creating, continuing and describing number patterns. A variety of challenging, increasing number patterns have been created, all beginning between multiples of the number by which they count. The sequences are mostly correct and mathematical language has been used to describe the patterns. To develop further, Darcy could explore decreasing number patterns and use patterns with multiples of numbers other than 2, 5 and 10. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade B standard midway through 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.
  • Patterns and Algebra
    Students describe, create and continue a variety of number patterns and relate addition and subtraction facts to at least 20.
