Other Work Samples for:

Haley has demonstrated basic knowledge and understanding of 2D shapes. Some shapes have been correctly identified and their features have been described with a reasonable level of accuracy, but there are errors in the naming of other shapes and the describing of their features. Some mathematical language has been used but Haley needs to revise the concept of symmetry and ensure that angles are correctly counted. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade D standard at the end of 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.
