8] I can evaluate the development and outcome of a project using appropriate criteria. 
9] I can interpret and communicate solutions to practical problems drawing simple conclusions and providing explanations.
10] I can demonstrate the importance of a mathematical law, proof or contribution made by particular mathematical thinker to human development and understanding, e.g. Euclid, Napier, or Fibonacci.
11] I can represent a verbal problem as a mathematical problem.
12] I can use a calculator to perform and to check mathematical operations, including use of the memory and fractions functions.

Learning Area Outcome: I understand the structure of the number system and the relationship between numbers.

Subject Focus: Number - The Number System

2] I can link a graphical representation with a sequence and/or function.
3] I can interpret and understand rates of change presented in a variety of linear and non-linear graphs including travel graphs.
4] I can solve simple linear inequalities in one variable and represent the solution on the number line, e.g. 7x + 5 < 33.
5] I can change the subject of a formula to meet my specific needs, e.g. from y=2x+5 to x=y-5 /2. 

Learning Area Outcome: I understand and use various forms of measurement and can make reasonable estimations. 

Subject Focus: Shape, Space and Measures - Measures

1] I can use Pythagoras' Theorem in 3D.
2] I can use trigonometric ratios to work through simple situations involving angles and bearings in 3D.

2] I can draw and interpret cumulative frequency diagrams.
3] I can identify an appropriate statistics-based project and interpret and communicate conclusions drawn.  
4] I can self-select the methods for collecting, manipulating and representing data.  PERSONAL LEARNING
5] I can create a mathematical artefact to show how a statistical project has reached an outcome, for example a presentation, statistical chart or spreadsheet with conclusions drawn. 
6] I can construct a cumulative frequency table and use it to draw a cumulative frequency graph. 
7] I can use cumulative frequency graphs to estimate the median.

Learning Area Outcome:  I understand the ideas of chance and uncertainty and can work out probability calculations.
