## What could the question be? - Cameron : Grade Commentary

### Other Work Samples for:

Cameron has demonstrated a very limited level of competence in using different operations to demonstrate number relationships. Only addition and subtraction have been used and the number sentences are simple. An attempt at a multi-step operation has been made but it is incorrect. Word problems have not been included and there is no use of mathematical language. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade E standard at the end of Stage 1.

The student has an elementary knowledge and understanding in few areas of the content and has achieved very limited competence in some of 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.
