Summarising Pupil R's attainment in number and algebra
Pupil R's attainment in number and algebra is best described as secure in level 6. To demonstrate further progress and evidence of working at high level 6, Pupil R needs to construct functions to represent a wider range of problems. She needs to develop her understanding of operations with fractions to include dividing by as well as multiplying by a fraction. She needs to develop her reasoning about proportional change so that she can begin to use multiplicative methods to solve problems such as finding the original cost of an article labelled ‘15% off… now £55.25’ or problems involving ratio. She needs to develop her understanding of the equivalence of graphical, algebraic and numerical representations.
