## Chelsea at the zoo - Casey : Grade Commentary

### Other Work Samples for:

Casey has demonstrated basic knowledge and understanding of addition facts to 10, and a limited level of competence in solving mathematical problems. Two possible combinations have been identified but the numerical expressions are incomplete. Symbols have not been used consistently and the diagram is incorrect. To progress further, Casey could use objects to assist in the recording of possible combinations and use words to describe solutions. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade D standard midway through Stage 1.

### Grade D

The student has a basic knowledge and understanding of the content and has achieved a limited 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.
• Patterns and Algebra
Students describe, create and continue a variety of number patterns and relate addition and subtraction facts to at least 20.
