# has consistently demonstrated enthusiasm and interest throughout the year.
# has shown good interested and enjoyed success throughout the year.
#'s level of interests has been inconsistent. # needs to make continual effort to realise ~ potential in this discipline.
It has proven difficult to appropriately understand #'s level of ability courtesy of ~ reticence to contribute to class discussions and volunteer answers. When asked a direct question # invariably forwards a germane reply.
It would be pleasing if # made greater effort to participate in discursive work and fully demonstrate ~ ability in Mathematics.
During lessons, # can procrastinate over written work. ^ should attempt to redress this situation, attempting to be more industrious in the future.
To reach ~ potential, # needs to be far more industrious during lessons. Far too often ^ lacks industry with regard to written work.
Additionally, ^ has been disorganised with regard to homework. # should bear in mind that greater commitment toward homework is expected in Year X.
^ has a sound understanding of the fundamentals of Mathematics' invariably # is accurate in ~ application of the four main rules, in addition to having an appropriately speedy recall of multiplication-tables.
^ benefits from a good understanding of the four main rules and is similarly successful in the recall of multiplication tables. Nevertheless, ^ should not be complacent as # should attempt to further practise and consolidate these skills.
^ responds well to algorhythmic-style questions in connexion with the four main rules. However, # needs to consolidate and apply this knowledge to problem-solving activities.
# has shown first-rate application of ~ mathematical understanding when dealing with problem-solving activities.
# is starting to apply ~ mathematical understanding to problem-solving activities. # would benefit from growing exposure to such questions in order that ^ appreciates the relevance of Mathematics in the real world.
# should be exposed to more pragmatic, problem-solving activities in order that ^ appreciates that mathematical concepts need to be applied.
# has dealt particularly well with written problems, wherein both the appropriate information and method needed to be identified.
# would benefit from additional exposure to written problems involving both analysis of the question and identification of the appropriate method.
^ has been open to new strategies and is duly comfortable with the concept of Number.
^ has encountered a range of new strategies for approaching familiar problems in an effort to ensure # is comfortable with the concept of Number.
^ needs to be receptive to new strategies. # should appreciate that Mathematics is a versatile concept wherein various methods will afford success.
# has accrued an excellent mathematical vocabulary, frequently demonstrating this knowledge within class.
# has had the opportunity to extend ~ mathematical vocabulary; quite possibly # could have made a more concerted effort to retain this information as ^ appears to require frequent reminders.
Whilst # has encountered a plethora of new mathematical vocabulary, ^ appears to have difficulty in retaining this information.
#'s work benefits from excellent presentation. This is a boon in such an accurate discipline.
#'s attention to presentation is erratic. ^ needs to appreciate that clarity of presentation ensures accuracy and ease of examining methodology.

# should make far greater effort to present work appropriately. Mathematics is an accurate discipline - clear presentation can afford greater success in addition to the opportunity to comprehensively check methods.
# has a relatively good knowledge of approximating and estimating; ^ should attempt to make increasing use of this understanding to ensure the veracity of answers.
# has made some use of approximation and estimation. ^ should utilise these concepts more regularly since they afford the opportunity to speedily assess the veracity of answers and give clues to appropriate methodologies in problem solving.
# should attempt to utilise approximation and estimation when solving mathematical problems as they can help to indicate an appropriate strategy, in addition, they afford the opportunity to readily check the veracity of an answer.
^ has indicated uncertainty within X. Consequently, this is an area which should be reinforced at the earliest opportunity.
In summation, # has been an excellent student whose ability is well above the expectancies for ~ age.
In conclusion, # has sustained good effort in this discipline throughout the year and deserves success. ^ ability is above the expectations for ~ age.
# should be congratulated for ~ efforts over the year - there is good reason to believe ~ abilities have improved. # mathematical ability is concomitant with the expectation for ~ age.
There is good reason to suppose that # could have been more successful in this discipline over the year. It is debateable whether ^ made an effort concomitant with ~ innate abilities.
# finds Mathematics difficult. ~ ability is below the expected standards of a child of ~ age, but # can, unerringly, be relied upon to make excellent effort.
# needs to apply himself/herself more within this subject. # is not without ability - ^ is capable of more. In consequence, #'s results have been below the expectations for ~ age.
