## Rectangular prisms - Jessie : Grade Commentary

### Other Work Samples for:

Jessie has sketched and accurately labelled two rectangular prisms, showing the relationship between height, breadth, length and volume. Visual and numerical representation have been used to demonstrate an understanding of prism shapes and factors. There is evidence of abstract knowledge and consistent use of mathematical terminology. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade B standard at the end of Stage 3.

### Grade B

The student has a thorough knowledge and understanding of the content and a high level of competence in the processes and skills. In addition, the student is able to apply this knowledge and these skills to most situations.

## Foundation Statement strands

The following strands are covered in this activity:

• Working Mathematically
Students ask questions and undertake investigations, selecting appropriate technological applications and problem-solving strategies. They use mathematical terminology and some conventions and they give valid reasons when comparing and selecting from possible solutions, making connections with existing knowledge and understanding.
• Measurement and Data
Students select and use the appropriate unit to estimate, measure and calculate length, area, volume, capacity and mass. They use 24-hour time in real-life situations and construct timelines. Students draw and interpret a variety of graphs using a scale.
• Space and Geometry
Students construct and classify 3D objects and 2D shapes and compare and describe their properties. They measure, construct and classify angles and make simple calculations using scale.
