### Maths portfolio sample

Description:
In maths we have bean working on strategy maths. This maths is slower than knowlege and takes longer to answer, it also requres a strategy to help you work the answer out.
I am working on stage 6.
We have been takeing one workshop every week to run throgh all the strategies we have been learning.

Big Idea:
This week we got given a peice to work on (Showen above). It has prices with question we had to answer. Our stage 6 goal was to widen our range of strategies. Here are some that we have bean working on.

Ronding and compensating

Reversibillity

Standed Place Value Partitioning

Lately I have been working on Place Value.

Problem 1:
379 + 345 = 724

Problem 2:
215 - 155 = 60

Problem 3:
289 + 137 =  426

Problem 4:
289 + 155 = 134

Feedback and Feedforward: Great job Bella! You did really good at getting what you got done in the short amount of time you had. Maybe next time you could try to find time at home to do it as well. Ana

Evauation:
I think that I did a good job with completeing my task. I think that if I had more time, I would try useing more stategies to help my learning and to put myself in the pit.

1. Oh Bella - I was looking forward to see the evidence of all of your learning! You had lots of working out - I can't remember if you were doing it on a whiteboard table or in your book? It is always good to show your working!

Yes, Stage 6 is all about choosing the most efficient strategy depending on the relationship between the numbers. We want to see Equal Additions, Place Value Partitioning, Reversibility and Rounding & Compensating. Keep trying to look at the relationship between the numbers to decide what strategy is best to use.
