Other Work Samples for:

Drew has demonstrated elementary knowledge and understanding of perimeter and area. A statement has been made but examples have not been used to justify the explanation. No calculations have been performed and there is no evidence of an understanding of the correlation between area and perimeter. To progress further, Drew could use diagrams and calculations to make comparisons between perimeters and area. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade E standard midway through Stage 3.
