Other Work Samples for:

Drew has demonstrated basic knowledge and understanding of 2D shapes. The shapes have not been named and there is limited understanding of symmetry but some properties have been accurately identified. To progress further, Drew could practise folding pieces of paper in half to note lines of symmetry in circles and rectangles. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade D standard midway through Stage 2.

Grade D

The student has a basic knowledge and understanding of the content and has achieved a limited 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.
