Maths Portfolio Sample

Description: In Maths we did something Fraction CheckPoint. Fraction CheckPoint is something full with different kinds of maths questions. Each question is based on a different thing. James asked us to work out as much as we could in the time he gave us we also had to show our strategies/ how we worked it out so he could see what we need to work on.


Nice job Emily next time you could work on writing how you figured the problems out, but otherwise I think you did really well.
- Tabitha. C

Evaluation: I found using different strategies hard but I found working them out average.
