Other Work Samples for:

Ali has demonstrated a 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 simple compass rose has been included but the coordinates have been placed on the grid lines rather than in the spaces. Varied directional language has been used to describe the route in relation to objects on the map, and specific references to coordinates have been made. To improve, Ali should place coordinates correctly on the map and include in the compass rose points between the four major points. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade B standard midway through Stage 2.

Grade B

The student has a thorough knowledge and understanding of the content and a high level of competence in the processes and skills. In addition, the student is able to apply this knowledge and these skills to most 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.
