Uses simple mathematical and personal problem solving strategies in highly familiar contexts

SUPPORT

CONTEXT

TEXT COMPLEXITY

TASK COMPLEXITY

Works alongside an expert/ mentor where prompting and advice can be provided

Highly familiar contexts Concrete and immediate

Very restricted range of contexts

Short and simple Highly explicit purpose

Limited, highly familiar vocabulary

Concrete tasks of 1 or 2 steps

Processes include locating, recognising

FOCUS AREA:

PERFORMANCE FEATURES INCLUDE:

Problem solving processes including estimating and reflecting

– Relies heavily on hands-on (concrete) and real life materials, personal experience and prior knowledge to:

use one or two pieces of information in performing a simple mathematical process

roughly check the reasonableness of the outcome(s) with support via prompting or questioning

Mathematical methods and use of tools

  • –  Uses personal, informal ‘in-the-head’ methods to calculate or uses a calculator to calculate

  • –  Identifies and uses appropriate tools at a basic level in a limited range of applications, e.g. uses a ruler to decide whether an item is longer than 10 cm or uses a simple calculator to subtract two numbers

Mathematical knowledge and skills: number and algebra

  • –  Understands place value and recognises and compares whole number amounts (into the 100s), halves and quantities, including money, in personally relevant contexts

  • –  Adds and subtracts simple whole number amounts (into the 100s) and familiar monetary amounts in personally relevant contexts

Mathematical knowledge and skills: measurement and geometry

  • –  Recognises and compares familiar shapes and objects in relation to size and shape

  • –  Recognises and compares familiar basic metric measurements and quantities such as length, mass, capacity/volume, time, temperature, e.g. personal height and weight, a litre of milk or vehicle height clearances

  • –  Gives and follows simple and familiar oral directions, including using highly familiar maps/ diagrams

Mathematical knowledge and skills: statistics and probability

– Compares information and data within highly familiar simple texts, lists, charts, diagrams and tables
