## Classroom map - Dale : Grade Commentary

### Other Work Samples for:

Dale has demonstrated a limited level of competence in using coordinates to represent and describe the position of objects on a map. A simple classroom map has been drawn and labelled using coordinates but a key has not been provided and some of the objects in the map are unclear. The locations of items in the classroom have been correctly identified using coordinates but there is a lack of understanding about the use of the x and y axes to identify position. Directions between points on the map have been provided but there is a lack of positional language in the description and a lack of clarity in the instructions. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade D standard midway through Stage 2.

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.
