Chris has created a variety of complex and intricate number patterns using all four operations. The generalisations about number relationships and predictions of higher terms are mostly accurate. A very high level of competence is evident in the use of mathematical terminology and symbols to record and explain number patterns. Although the answer to Question 10 is incorrect, the generalisation indicates that the number pattern has clearly been understood. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade A standard at the end of Stage 2.
