EDMA262 Mathematics: Learning & Teaching 1


Assessment 2: MAI, Report, Lesson Plan & Justification

Student : Tia
Year level: 4
Nutshell statement.
The sole purpose of this lesson and form of assessment was to classify and
extend on the students; current abilities in working with money, taken
from the Maths Assessment Interview. The assessment gave an
understanding to what the student; Tia comprehended. Tia used a number
of methods to work out her answers, which included, counting on her
fingers, subitising and general known strategies. Tia however had a
misconception of not being able to subtract small amounts of money from
larger amounts. This assisted me to efficiently plan my lesson to cater to
her needs as well as well as giving indication as to what knowledge the
whole class has according to the learning intention. The lesson allows
children to practice their addition and subtraction strategies, and also
gives students the opportunity to reflect on what areas they find
challenging.

Catering for diversity:

Enabling prompt:
For those students who find this task difficult, teacher will have a focus group on the floor.
Teacher may begin the task as a group, providing relevant examples.

Extending prompt:
For those students at standard level, work on activity at their tables. For students who are
higher, provide opportunities for extension, such as more challenging questions. Teacher has
money wallets prepared for high achievers. These money wallets contain different amounts
E.g. $54.10 or $30.25. Provide questions for students to work out using only the money in
their wallets.

English as additional language learner/dialect (EALL/D) learners:


Provide a sheet showing different coins and notes. Students must colour, cut and paste on
to a poster. Students must label each coin or note. This activity shows what money students

can recognise.

Indigenous learners:
To facilitate the needs of an indigenous learner, prior to commencing the lesson the teacher
will spend 5 minutes to prompt students prompt knowledge about the coins. This will give
them an opportunity to share their knowledge on the topic. For E.g discussing what is on the
coins, who are the people? What are the native animals?
