COMMENTS: Yr10Algebra
1=You are showing excellent self management as you tackle the challenge of learning algebra using flipped learning. Do ask for help when you need it. Others will have similar questions. Do take time to help those around you. Explaining an idea to someone else is a great way of checking the depth of your own understanding.
2=You are showing excellent self management as you tackle the challenge of learning algebra using flipped learning. Do ask for help from your classmates or from me when you need it. Others will have similar questions.
3=You have worked well with me on the algebra content. You will need to show good self management as we move into a few weeks where you can work through new content at your own pace. If you find an idea challenging to understand seek help quickly. If i am busy with someone else then begin with those classmates you know have good understanding. Don't let lack of understanding be an excuse to get distracted.
4=You generally show good self management, requiring few reminders to keep on task as you work through the algebra content at your own pace. Don't hesitate to seek help from your classmates or me if you are unsure. If you have a question so will others in the class.
5=You find it challenging to listen to group explanations of content without getting distracted. In our next unit of work you will access videos of HVHS teachers explaining algebra. You can move through videos and exercises at the pace that allows you to fully understand. Put your earphones in and focus. Use your device in a responsible manner. Rewind tricky content. Get stuck? Seek help quickly from your classmates or from me. Take responsibility for your own learning.
COMMENTS: Yr10introT2
1=#N you are an outstanding student and have worked very hard throughout the term.
2=#N you always put your best effort into classwork.
3=#N you are a friendly and hard-working member of the class and have put in a steady performance throughout the #Time-period.
4=#N you generally work well with an occasional reminder to keep focused.

7=#N you work hard when present but your patchy attendance is significantly affecting your understanding.
8=#N you find Mathematics frustrating and are not engaged in class. You and i need to work together to improve your understanding.
9=#N you are usually on task but keeping focused on explanations can be a challenge for you. You miss key information. You show good ability to recognise when this has happened and seek help to gain understanding. However it would be a more efficient use of both of our time if you listened well the first time.
10=#N you find Mathematics a challenge and can easily be distracted. When you focus you show you can understand the content.
COMMENTS: Yr10Measurement
1=Your Measurement test shows you can measure but have trouble calculating area and perimeter. You need to work on using formula. Knowing which one to use and how to substitute in numbers will allow you to solve many real life mathematical problems and significantly improve your assessment results.
2=Your Measurement test shows you can calculate the area of simple shapes but find it more challenging with more complex shapes. Correctly choosing and using a formula takes practice but doing so will quickly improve your results. Take care to use correct units.
3=Your Measurement test shows you can calculate the area and perimeter of complex shapes but find it difficult to apply this knowledge in real contexts. The majority of NCEA assessments require you to do this so it important to practice. Highlighting information given in the question will help you identify which formula to use and stop you feeling overwhelmed by all the words.
4=Your Measurement test shows you have excellent understanding of the Mathematical concepts of area and perimeter and how to use these in a context. Take time to demonstrate this understanding to the marker by showing full working and linking your answer back to the context of the question in a sentence.
COMMENTS: Yr10NCEA
1=We will carry out a Level 1 NCEA Internal Assessment later in T3. You should achieve these 4 credits and be on the way to obtaining the 10 Numeracy credits required for NCEA Level 1. Listen carefully to what is required for Excellence and take care of small details.
2=We will carry out a Level 1 NCEA Internal Assessment later in T3. You will need to listen carefully to what is required if you wish to achieve well. This should allow you to obtain the first 4 credits of the 10 Numeracy credits required for NCEA Level 1.
3=We will carry out a Level 1 NCEA Internal Assessment later in T3. I will work with you but you will need to listen carefully to what is required if you wish to achieve. Obtaining 10 Numeracy credits is a requirement for passing for NCEA Level 1 so it important you put real effort into gaining the 4 credits this standard offers.
