Maths Portfolio Sample

Description:  In math we have been learning times and division with rebecca. We did two question.The question is that there are 52 students going to the regent and 8 students can fit in 1 minivan so how many minivans will we need.


1st question:

2nd question:

Big idea: For the first question I used skip counting to get 48 and the I knew that there were 4 left. For the second question I used to different ways to work it out and I used skip counting for the first question and for the second way I used the hundred board and the answer was $42.   

Feedback/Feedforward:i like how how you solved the question in stead of going 7,14 ... and so on. instead you did 5x6 and 6x2. I think you need to make it more clear what question your solving - Eil

Evaluation: I think I did really well but I think I could work on not using skip counting and I could use 5x6 and 6x2.

  1. Wow Sophie - it is great to see you using different strategies to work things out! As the questions get harder it is even more important to use different strategies so keep it up! Keep using materials too when needed, as they are a great way to check our numbers while adding and multiplying! Great work this term.
