Other Work Samples for:

Jo has demonstrated a very high level of competence in using coordinates to represent position and describe a route. A detailed, clearly labelled map of the bike track has been drawn and a compass rose has been included. Although the coordinates have been placed on the grid lines rather than in the spaces, the use of directional language to describe the route in relation to objects on the map is outstanding, and extensive understanding of compass points has been demonstrated. To improve, Jo could include a key and make additional reference to locations on the map. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade A standard midway through Stage 2.

Grade A

The student has an extensive knowledge and understanding of the content and can readily apply this knowledge. In addition, the student has achieved a very high level of competence in the processes and skills and can apply these skills to new situations.

Foundation Statement strands

The following strands are covered in this activity:

  • Working Mathematically
    Students ask questions and use appropriate mental or written strategies, and technology, to solve problems. They use appropriate terminology to describe and link mathematical ideas, check statements for accuracy and explain reasoning.
  • Space and Geometry
    Students name, describe and sketch particular 3D objects and 2D shapes. They compare angles using informal means and describe a 'right angle'. Students use coordinates to describe position and compass points to give and follow directions.
