## What could the question be? - Riley : Grade Commentary

### Other Work Samples for:

Riley has demonstrated an adequate level of competence in constructing mathematical problems using different operations. All four operations have been accurately used and multi-step operations have been included. Subtraction word problems have been posed and sound knowledge of simple fractions has been demonstrated. To progress further, Riley could include four-digit numbers and decimals. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade C standard at the end of 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.
• Number
Students count, order, read and record numbers up to 9999 and use mental and written strategies, including the formal written algorithm, to solve addition and subtraction problems involving numbers of up to four digits. They use mental strategies to recall multiplication facts up to 10 x 10 and related division facts and use informal written strategies for multiplication and division of two-digit numbers by one-digit numbers. Students model, compare and represent simple fractions and recognise percentages in everyday situations and they model, compare, represent, add and subtract decimals to two decimal places. Students perform simple calculations with money and conduct simple chance experiments.
