Ricky 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 a key has been provided but the features on the map do not correlate exactly to the key. Coordinates have been used to label the axes but the labelling is confusing and inconsistent. The locations of some items in the classroom have been correctly identified using coordinates but there is some inaccuracy in the use of the x and y axes to identify position. Everyday language has been used to describe the direction between points on the map. To improve, Ricky could label the axes appropriately, and use coordinates and positional language to give directions. 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.
