## Is it fair? - Ashley : Grade Commentary

### Other Work Samples for:

Ashley has demonstrated an extensive knowledge and understanding of chance events in an experimental context. A variety of strategies has been used and a very high level of competence in the tallying, tabling and graphing of data has been demonstrated. Ashley has provided examples, logically justified ideas, and clearly explained how an answer has been obtained. There is evidence of an ability to link ideas and concepts and to use mathematical terminology appropriately. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade A standard at the end of Stage 2.

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.
• Number
Students count, order, read and record numbers up to 9999 and use mental and written strategies, including the formal written algorithm, to solve addition and subtraction problems involving numbers of up to four digits. They use mental strategies to recall multiplication facts up to 10 x 10 and related division facts and use informal written strategies for multiplication and division of two-digit numbers by one-digit numbers. Students model, compare and represent simple fractions and recognise percentages in everyday situations and they model, compare, represent, add and subtract decimals to two decimal places. Students perform simple calculations with money and conduct simple chance experiments.
