Terry has demonstrated a sound understanding of picture graphs and an adequate level of competence in using a picture graph to represent data. The graph has been labelled and similar-sized representations have been used. Some of the pictures do not necessarily relate to the items represented and the graph has not been correctly set out. There is some interpretation of the graph and an attempt at an informal chance concept has been made. Appropriate mathematical language has been used. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade C standard at the end of Stage 1.

Grade C

The student has a sound knowledge and understanding of the main areas of content and has achieved an adequate level of competence in the processes and skills.

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.
  • Number
    Students count, order, read and write numbers up to 999 and use a range of mental strategies, informal recording methods and materials to add, subtract, multiply and divide. They model and describe objects and collections divided into halves and quarters. Students sort, order and count money and recognise and describe the element of chance in familiar activities.
  • Measurement and Data
    Students estimate, measure, compare and record using informal units for length, area, volume, capacity and mass. They recognise the need for formal units of length and use the metre and centimetre to measure length and distance. Students use a calendar to identify the date and name and order the months and the seasons of the year. They use informal units to compare and order the duration of events and tell the time on the half-hour. Students gather, organise, display and interpret data using column and picture graphs.
