# TASK : HAY THERE!

## 3 HORSES ATE 5 BALES OF HAY AND 5 COWS ATE 8 BALES OF HAY.

WHICH TYPE OF ANIMAL GETS TO EAT MORE HAY, INDIVIDUALLY?

The student demonstrated a solid strategy,

bales). The student has completed all areas of the
task correctly, concluding that the horses will eat
one fifteenth more hay than the cows.

task (e.g. failed to answer exactly how much more
hay horses receive). However, the students
working out presented an adequate method,
detailing mathematical understanding of
partitioning fractions of a whole to divide equally.

## An attempt to solve the problem is evident,

the task. This may be due to a misunderstanding

some elements of a in the students strategy. Although the working out
productive strategy provided shows some evidence of strategic and
purposeful mathematical thinking, the student has
been unsuccessful in completing the task due to
an invalid strategy, miscalculation or evidence
that the students was unsure of their next step.

## Minimal or no evidence of attempting the task,

(e.g. students working out may not show evidence
of attempting to divide five bales of hay amongst
3 horses).
