## Making Number Patterns - Flynn : Grade Commentary

### Other Work Samples for:

Flynn has demonstrated an adequate level of competence in creating, continuing and recording patterns for the four operations. Higher terms and missing values in number patterns have been predicted with some accuracy. The addition patterns Flynn has created are simple and accurate but there are some inaccuracies in the subtraction, multiplication and division patterns and their explanations. Simple generalisations about the patterns have been made and some mathematical terminology has been used. To improve, Flynn could create more complex patterns and include division. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade C standard midway through Stage 2.

### Grade C

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.
