# has tried hard to overcome difficulties in Mathematics.
"
Using Maths
^ has shown great ability in trying different approaches and finding ways of solving Math problems.
^ is able to organise ~ work and checks results.
^ is beginning to organise ~ work and check results, and is becoming more adept at trying different approaches in problem solving.
^ shows more independence in organising ~ work, and is beginning to check ~ answers.
^ has worked consistently in trying different strategies when solving problems.
Some effort has been made to try different approaches in solving problems, but ^ needs reminding to check results.
"
Number & Algebra
^ understands place value well when multiplying and dividing, and can use simple fractions and describes number patterns.
^ has sound understanding of factors, multiples and square numbers.
^ has developed ~ understanding of four rules well, and applies them appropriately to ~ work.
^ has the ability to use multiples, factors and square numbers in ~ mental arithmetic.
^ has a good understanding of place value.
^ has improved ~ understanding of place value and is beginning to use the four rules in correct context.
^ has developed a better understanding of fractions, multiples and square numbers.
"
Shape
^ has excellent understanding of 2D symmetry, and is beginning to apply knowledge of angles in ~ work on Shape, particularly in ICT.
^ has worked extremely well on perimeter and area, and finds the volumes of shapes by counting cubes.
^ has begun to work precisely when making 3D shapes from nets.
^ has a developing understanding of 2D symmetry, and is beginning to apply knowledge of angles in ~ work on Shape, particularly in ICT.
^ has worked well on perimeter and area, and finds the volumes of shapes by counting cubes.
^ is able to make 3D shapes from nets.
"
Handling Data
^ is able to collect and record data in simple tables and lists, and constructs bar charts and line graphs.
^ interprets the information when questioned.
^ has the ability to create bar charts and can present information in simple results tables with increasing understanding and accuracy.
^ has worked hard to develop ~ graphing skills, particularly when creating bar charts. ^ can record data in results tables with help.
"
Target
^ could develop ~ Mathematical skills by explaining and offering reasons for ~ work.
^ needs to apply ~ Mathematics knowledge when investigating - by searching for patterns in numbers and data.
^ needs to increase ~ Mental Mathematics skills - particularly in speed and recalling Maths facts - e.g. tables, weights and measures.
