Other Work Samples for:

Casey has labelled the graphs and recorded information with some accuracy. Measurements have been included but the interpretation of the graphs is incorrect and there is a lack of explanation. The use of headings is confusing as the graphs should be different representations of the same information. An incomplete key has been attempted for the picture graph but some confusion is evident in the determination of a suitable scale. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade D standard at the end of Stage 3.

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.
