## Classroom map - Mel : Grade Commentary

### Other Work Samples for:

Mel has demonstrated an adequate level of competence in using coordinates to represent and describe the position of objects on a map. A simple classroom map has been drawn and labelled using coordinates but a key has not been provided. The locations of items in the classroom have been correctly identified using coordinates and, although a compass rose was not required, one has been included and compass points have been referenced in the directions. To improve, Mel could elaborate on the route between objects to include more than one direction at a time, and include a key to make the directions easier to follow. 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.
