## Bike track - Terry : Grade Commentary

### Other Work Samples for:

Terry has demonstrated an adequate level of competence in using coordinates to represent position and describe a route. A detailed map of the bike track has been drawn, a compass rose has been included and coordinates have been accurately labelled. Although an eight-point compass rose has been included, only the four main points have been used to describe the route. Precise positional language and map coordinates have been used to describe the route but one minor direction has been omitted. To improve, Terry should include reference to objects on the map in the description of the route. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade C standard midway through Stage 2.

The student has a sound knowledge and understanding of the main areas of content and has achieved an adequate level of competence in the processes and skills.

## 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.
