Jules has demonstrated an adequate level of competence in creating, continuing and recording number patterns for two of the four operations. A variety of strategies have been used and the patterns are mostly accurate. There is some evidence of complexity in the pictorial pattern that increases by threes. Simple generalisations about patterns have been made but more mathematical terminology could be used. To improve, Jules could include more complex number patterns involving multiplication and division. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade C standard midway through Stage 2.
