Read the three pre-assessment tasks

Term 3 Week 1

Pre Assessment activity for Term 3 unit

Working Mathematically Focus: Questioning

  • WMS2.1: Asks questions that could be explored using mathematics in relation to Stage 2 content.

Space – Pre-assessment activity 1:

What is in the bag?

Using five groups for this activity. Each group will have a bag with an artefact in it.

Each student in the group will take a turn at feeling the unknown object, while the others may ask questions using Mathematical language to help them find out what it is. This process will continue until all members in the group have had a chance to feel the unknown object. Then all students will draw what they think it looks like and write a short description.

From this activity, the information of current Mathematical language and perceptions of space will be identified.

A checklist will be used for assessing the work samples. These will be indicators from the syllabus.

Measurement – Pre-assessment activity 2:

Who has the longest feet in each group?

Using five groups for this activity. Each group will have to use the equipment given to measure (ruler and string). Each student in the group will take a turn at measuring.

Then all students, using Mathematical language, record the results.

From this activity, the information of current Mathematical language and perceptions of length will be identified.

Space- Position – Pre-assessment activity 3:

Where is our school?

Using five groups for this activity. Each group will have a map of the area. The groups will be given a list of instructions to follow and their responses will be recorded using the Mathematical language appropriate to position.

From this activity, the information of current Mathematical language and perceptions of position will be identified.
