Other Work Samples for:

Shannon has demonstrated basic knowledge and understanding of 2D shapes. All regular shapes have been correctly named and the angles have been identified although they have not been correctly counted. The counting of sides is mostly accurate but there is some confusion as to the number of angles. Some lines of symmetry have been correctly identified and an attempt has been made to explain the symmetry of a circle using diagrams. 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.
